Autumn Brilliance Fern
A New Color for Every Season
The Autumn Fern likely got its name due to its amazing display of fall colors throughout the year. At its pinnacle of beauty in spring, the papery fronds of this plant display copper and red hues with pink fiddleheads that turn to tones of copper and orange in summer. In the fall, you can expect a bronze shade, while a bold green is displayed in the winter months.
It is a delightful choice for shady borders and woodland gardens. This low-growing and frilly fern behaves like ground cover due to its spreading habit. It can grow up to 1-2 feet tall and can spread to a similar width. Plant them in mass quantities and your garden will be set ablaze with vibrant shades of the seasons.
These shade-loving ferns are drought-resistant but thrive in wet to moist soil, and depending on your area, they will either act as an evergreen or a semi-evergreen. They provide the perfect background for your perennial garden, and they are very tolerant of heat with appropriate moisture. Just remember to plant them in an area that gets plenty of shade, to avoid being scorched by the sun. As an added
bonus, deer and other creatures will not feast of these ferns.
