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.

As Summer draws to a close....

September is a transitory month in the garden. As summer’s end approaches, the shadows are growing longer and the days are becoming shorter. This time of year may find some landscapes a tad lackluster. When designing your garden, you may wish to include plants that remain perky thoughout the season or experience their heyday now. The plants featured in this newsletter provide a lot of late season oomph and promise to beckon you down the pathways of your garden.

Our next guided Saturday Stroll is September 16th., followed by October 7th. We hope you’ll come visit us this summer.

Customer Comment:

“I ordered a few things and had a pleasant experience. Email communication was prompt. The plants themselves arrived swiftly, were very well packed and were very large and had impressively healthy root systems. I would definitely order from them again.”
