Hardy Ferns

Dryopteris erythrosora 'Brilliance'

Autumn Fern, Japanese Shield Fern
Autumn Fern, one of the prettiest ferns you can grow, is distinguished by it's coppery-pink new growth which matures to a glossy bronze green in summer. New fronds continue to unfurl throughout the season, so this coppery coloring is ever present. We are always thrilled with our combination of Heuchera 'Caramel' and this fern along our Epimedium walk.
