Dryopteris erythrosora Brilliance
Brilliance Autumn Fern
This solid, trouble free evergreen fern is a perfect plant for shade and semi-shade areas forming a dense clump with upright, finely cut, nearly lustrous fronds and deep green color. It's a perfect plant for grouping in the landscape to give that soft, forest floor feeling and is very drought tolerant once established. It all sounds great, but why is this plant named 'Brilliance'?? Even with all its great virtues, the time when this plant jumps into your consciousness is when its new growth emerges such a bright reddish-orange that you'll think the plant is spontaneously combusting! It's an amazing show of color that will make your sedate shaded area a brilliant center of attention!
