Fern Athyrium 'Godzilla'
Common name: Giant Japanese Painted Fern
Like Athyrium n. ‘Pictum’ on steroids, this giant painted fern was discovered at Plant Delights Nursery in the mid-90s and is thought to be a sporeling of ‘Pictum’ and the Lady Fern.
It forms a massive, arching clump of silvery fronds with green highlights and dark purple stems. Like the Lady Fern, ‘Godzilla’ spreads slowly where it is happiest in moist, loamy soils.
Grow this fern as a low maintenance filler in shady borders combined with large hostas and Aralia ‘Sun King’.
