Athyrium niponicum, commonly known as Oriental ladyfern, is a species of fern in the genus Athyrium, native to eastern Asia in Japan, northern China, Korea and Taiwan. It is a deciduous herbaceous plant, with whorls of fronds growing from spreading rhizomes.

It is grown as an ornamental plant in gardens; several cultivars have been selected, including 'Pictum' (Japanese Painted Fern) with pale silvery-green fronds and a bright red stem, 'Red Beauty' with yellow fronds and a bright red stem, and 'Pictum Cristatum' with crested fronds. 'Metallicum' is noted for its variegated silver, green and red foliage.
