Brilliance Autumn Fern
Three Amazing Colors in One Hardy Fern
Brilliance Autumn Fern, Dryopteris erythrosora 'Brilliance', is a popular groundcover that offers a lively splash of color. Use a few of these for those places in your yard where fussier plants fail to thrive. Brilliance Fern will brighten your shady perennial beds and borders and will fill-in around your trees and shrubs. If you love Autumn Ferns, you’ll find this new variety improves upon that popular choice, with even more color and “brilliance”.
You’ll be amazed by the spring show this lovely fern performs with its unfurling leaves in tones of orange/red and coppery-pink. The delightful color will provide decorative interest to your yard much longer into the spring than similar varieties before maturing to a deep green for summer.
The arching, 2-foot long fronds will maintain their color throughout summer with a glossy green sheen that is sure to draw the eye. As the frosts of autumn approach, your Brilliance Fern will give a last gasp of color, returning to its red-toned brilliance to spice up the fading landscape.
Brilliance Autumn Fern will reach a height of two feet with an equal spread. It has a clumping nature with triangular, pinnate fronds. It’s easy to grow and will be surprisingly drought tolerant once established in your garden. Brilliance Autumn Fern requires little care, so you won’t have to fuss over it, and it will thrive in those areas of your yard that discourage fussier plants.
Almost every garden has a spot for a Brilliance Autumn Fern. Easy to grow, adaptable to shade and offering 3-season color (4-season in warm climates), Brilliance Fern will be a lively addition to your yard this summer.
