Brilliance Autumn Fern Product Details
Dryopteris erythrosora 'Brilliance'
18 - 24"
15 - 18"
15 - 18"
Zones 5 - 8
Pinnate fronds unfurl a bright copper orange color when young, maturing to lush glossy green.
Cool, moist shaded areas are best. Does not tolerate dry, hard compacted soils.
Deep, humus enriched soil that is moisture retentive.
Spectacular foliage color for the shade. New fronds unfold in a brilliant orange coppery color then mature to a lush glossy green. The name is misleading because the best color appears in the spring time, while in the fall season, the fronds will turn a russet red which is nice, but not as spectacular as the spring color show.
This easy to grow garden fern is evergreen in frost-free areas and semi evergreen in colder regions well into the fall season or early winter. Spreads slowly by rhizomes.

These ferns are large, and hardy in region 6. They are a year long sight of beauty. I want more!
Hardiest of ferns!Review by jean Donahue - roslindale, MA Posted on 2012-03-17 14:08:33
I am a devotee of Autumn Brilliance! I have found them to be extremely hardy, with year around interest. They add a pleasant additional color to a shade garden, but does tolerate some partial sun. I find it to be very happy, even in some rather dry conditions at times. I keep adding more of these ferns due to their absolute reliability and thriving beauty!
