Dryopteris Erythrosora Brilliance


SKU: 4000000000000130 Category:


Dryopteris erythrosora Brilliance, or ‘Autumn Fern’, is an evergreen fern with strikingly orange-red new fronds in spring, which contrast beautifully with the shiny, dark green, mature fronds. Fading to lustrous summer green as the season progresses, the bipinnate, triangular blades draw attention again in autumn with their bright red ripe spores on their undersides. Prised for its adaptability and brilliance, Autumn Fern thrives on neglect and is pest and disease free. A great asset for shady, difficult corners of the garden.
