Dryopteris

Dryopteris erythrosora ‘Brilliance’ partial shade  shade lover

Once you’ve ushered this colorful easy-care fern into your woodland, you’ll see how deceptive its common name is. While ‘Brilliance’ delivers toasty russet shades in autumn, the dynamic display actually commences in spring when young pink fiddleheads transmute vibrant reddish copper and pink hues, and then mellow to a bronzy green. Polished dark green and tropical-looking, mature fronds are embellished during the summer by dramatic bright red spores on their flipsides and contrasting henna-tinted new growth throughout the season.

‘Brilliance’ can be utilized as a tall textural ground cover or as a striking specimen that remains evergreen in milder areas and relishes even moisture and good drainage.

Size: 2' 0" high x 2' 0" wide; hardy to zone 5.

Customer Comment:

“I found Digging Dog in a gardening magazine and am so thrilled I did. I went to their website after reading about them and was so impressed I immediately placed an order ( after checking with Garden Watchdog of course !) My plants were delayed 3 weeks due to the hot weather. Each Monday someone from Digging Dog called, explained the situation and explained the delay. What service!! My plants arrived today happy healthy and good size. I could not be happier and will shop Digging Dog much in the future.”
