Dryopteris erythrosora Brilliance

Copper Shield Fern Brilliance

Also known as autumn fern Brilliance, for its vivid spring and spore colour, Dryopteris erythrosora Brilliance is an evergreen, slow-growing, clump-forming fern with a shuttlecock-like habit. The emerging growth in spring forms pink croziers, opening to bright reddish-copper fronds, with divided leaflets, which mature to deep green. In autumn, the spores on the undersides of the leaves are brilliant orange-red. Copper shield fern Brilliance will tolerate dry soil if watered well in its first year and mulched. Cut away damaged fronds before the new growth emerges in spring. Copper shield fern Brilliance holds the RHS Award of Garden Merit.
