Dig into the details


The Brilliance Autumn Fern (Dryopteris erythrosora 'Brilliance') is a colorful and shade-tolerant perennial fern known for its striking foliage that changes color throughout the seasons. This hardy, low-maintenance plant is an excellent choice for gardeners seeking an attractive groundcover or accent plant for shady areas in the landscape.

The Overall Plant

The Brilliance Autumn Fern is a medium-sized, semi-evergreen fern that typically grows to a height of 2 feet and width of 18 inches, forming a dense, arching habit. Its fronds are finely divided, with each frond composed of numerous small, triangular leaflets called pinnae. The fern is hardy in USDA zones 5-9, making it suitable for a wide range of climates.

This shade-loving plant thrives in moist, well-drained, and humus-rich soils, preferring dappled or full shade for optimal growth. Although the Brilliance Autumn Fern can tolerate some drought once established, it performs best with consistent moisture. As a low-maintenance plant, it requires minimal care beyond occasional watering and the removal of old fronds to maintain a tidy appearance.

The Foliage

Unique Foliage Features One of the most notable features of the Brilliance Autumn Fern is its stunning foliage that offers year-round interest. New fronds emerge with a vibrant copper-orange hue in the spring, creating a striking contrast against the mature, glossy dark green foliage. As the fronds age, they gradually turn from copper to bronze and eventually dark green, providing a multi-tonal display that adds depth and texture to the garden.

The Brilliance Autumn Fern does not produce flowers or fruit, but its attractive foliage and ability to thrive in shady conditions make it a valuable addition to the landscape. Its colorful fronds can be used to brighten up shaded borders, woodland gardens, or as an understory plant beneath trees and shrubs. It also pairs well with other shade-loving perennials, such as hostas and astilbes, to create a lush and visually appealing garden composition.
