Athyrium 'Godzilla'

Japanese painted fern

An introduction by Plant Delights Nursery in 2009, this Japanese painted fern is a monster. Growing up to 3' tall and spreading up to 6' wide, 'Godzilla' has the appearance of 'Picta' with the punch of an ostrich fern. 'Godzilla' is great in shady locations in moist soil to dry shade.
