'Brilliance' is an evergreen fern with bronze-coloured new fronds in spring and particularly bright orange-red ripe spores on the undersides of the leaves in autumn


Perfect for any shade planting, these ferns are easy to grow and many will cope with dry shade once established. An excellent foil to other plants, they have a quiet charm all of their own when the fronds unfurl in spring to reveal the fresh, divided foliage. 


Dryopteris Hardy Fern


Easy to grow in most cool, moist, lightly shaded sites and will grow in full sun if given plenty of moisture. Tolerant of dry shade but water regularly in their first season and mulch well. Dead or damaged fronds may be removed as necessary
