Dryopteris erythrosora 'Brilliance' Brilliance Autumn Fern

Dryopteris erythrosora 'Brilliance' is a selected form of autumn fern that has brighter red new growth than what is typically seen with other species. A bold and beautiful choice for dappled sunlight to deeply shaded areas. Leaves mature to deeply cut, dark green. Autumn fern is a very easy-to-grow, deer-resistant fern and adaptable to drier soils in cool, shaded locations.

  • Care Instructions

    Early Spring: Divide or transplant as soon as new growth appears, and water well if it is unseasonably dry, as plants prefer an evenly moist soil. Fertilize gently with a slow-release fertilizer or use an organic mulch. Recently planted Ferns may be slow to appear, but be patient.

    Mid-Spring: Water consistently if rainfall is not sufficient to keep soil moist. Apply a 2″ thick mulch of composted leaves or pine needles.

    Late Spring: Watch for slug or snail damage and treat as necessary.

    Summer: Continue regular watering as needed to maintain soil moisture.

    Fall: Cut foliage back to soil level when it dies back after a heavy frost. When the ground freezes, mulch to protect plants from heaving out of the soil in winter.
