Athyrium otophorum 'Okanum'
Common Name: Eared Lady Fern Family: Dryopteridaceae (The Wood Fern Family)

Perhaps my favourite fern: the triangular fronds have red stems (stipes) and emerge with tightly furled, red-flushed foliage which turns to pale yellow-green (almost gold) and eventually to light green. An outstanding specimen plant for the front of the shade border or the woodland garden.
