Japanese Painted Fern - Planted 2012

After toiling along with our Ostrich Ferns in our back/side yard for the past two seasons, I took the plunge and picked up a Japanese Painted Fern - Athyrium niponicum 'Pictum' and planted it in our shade garden right next to some hostas.  My mother-in-law tells me that she's had limited luck with getting ferns to come back every year, but I'll be babying this one and hoping I can get it to bounce back next Spring.
