Autumn Fern Brilliance - Dryopteris erythrosora 'Brilliance' - 4” Pot
It was love at first sight when we first laid eyes on Brilliance Autumn Fern (Dryopteris erythrosora ‘Brilliance’). Its glossy fronds greet the spring dressed in bright orange/salmon and rose tones and hold their color well into summer before turning an appropriately shiny dark green for summer and lasting all winter. We have no doubt that you will be impressed with this plant’s brilliant contribution to the garden panorama.
Brilliance Autumn Fern adds a shower of intense and lustrous color wherever needed in partial to fully shaded garden sites. New fronds greet the spring dressed in bright orange/salmon and rose tones, and it holds its color well into summer before turning an appropriately shiny green. Like most Dryopteris it is drought-tolerant once established, and remains fresh after many of its companion shrubs show signs of wilting. This is an evergreen that will reach 18 to 24” in a comfortably ferny setting. Give it a place of honor in Zones 5 – 8.
