Maintenance Notes: 

Athyrium grows best in moist soil with a neutral to moderately acidic pH. However, this variety can withstand drier soil than many other athyriums. Partial to full shade is best; some sunlight is necessary to draw out the coloring. To protect the crowns and tender shoots in the spring, it is best to leave the old fronds on the plant over the winter. They can be removed in the spring when the new fronds reach 6 inches tall. If division is necessary, do so in the spring.
