A gorgeous blue-green Japanese fern, made special due to little tufts that top the tip of every frond. Vibrant colors last into the heat of summer so long as it is well watered.

Not as vigorous as some of my other ferns, but the wine coloured stems and frosted leaves look beautiful in a shady spot.
