Japanese Painted Fern 'Metallicum'

Medium Plug Plant x 4


'Metallicum' is a hardy deciduous fern with silver-grey foliage; suitable for acidic, moist soil. It is a very elegant deciduous fern forming a pretty rosette of arching, strikingly refined, lance-shaped fronds.
Please note: The silver colouring shows through as plants become more mature.


What am I Buying?

Plug plants are small, young plants grown in cell trays. Even the largest plug plants, described as extra-large or jumbo, are still small plants from cell trays and not established plants. Plug plants can be great value compared to buying more established plants however they may need some extra care to get them started.

Caring for Plug Plants

We recommend starting plug plants in a small pot and not planting directly into open ground or large pots/planters. You will want a plant pot roughly the size of a tea mug, commonly referred to as 7cm or 9cm pots. Ensure the pot has plenty of holes underneath and preferably over two tiers for even better drainage.


Reduced Plastics

Please note: In order to lessen our environmental impact, all of our plants will be removed from their plastic cell trays or pots before sending. Ensure you are ready to pot your plants when they arrive.
