My Farorite Fern

Japanese Painted fern ~Athyrium niponicum var. pictum
Of all the ferns there are to choose from, this little one is my favorite. It’s survived being transplanted three times and forgives me when I forget to water it during dry spells. 
It’s going on it’s eighth year in my shade garden under the cherry tree.
