Dryopteris erythrosora 'Brilliance'
Brilliance Autumn Fern
Item #: 5293
Zones: 5a to 9b
Height: 24" tall
Origin: Eastern Asia
Dryopteris erythrosora 'Brilliance' is a selected form of autumn fern that has brighter red new growth than what is typically seen with spore-grown plants. Frankly, all autumn ferns have great color when the new fronds emerge from the evergreen clump, so this is really something special. Autumn fern is a very easy-to-grow, deer-resistant fern making a 2' wide clump that is tolerant of a wide range of garden conditions, including extreme drought once established.
