(aka: Dryopteris indusiata) We've grown Dryopteris labordei under its old name, Dryopteris indusiata, for years, but we've never seen a form like this from Australia's fern guru Chris Goudey, hence the cultivar name. You'll often see a trademark after this cultivar name but disregard it since it is not legal to trademark a product, only the origin (brand) of the product. The arching leaves emerge a stunning gold (brighter with age) on this 18" tall x 2' wide evergreen relative of autumn fern. Because Dryopteris labordei is apogamous (the fern version of monogamous self-fulfillment), all the sporelings are identical...very easy to grow in moist or fairly dry soils.
