      • Attractive Reddish Fronds in Spring and Autumn
      • Prefers Moisture-Rich, High Organic Soils in Part to Full Shade
      • Rabbit and Heavy Shade Tolerant

      One of the showiest ferns in recent years, Autumn fern 'Brilliance is a dazzling display of color for every season. The fronds turn from bright copper to soft green to russet-orange again, all on an evergreen habit that looks great in the full or partly shaded bed or border. These long, elegant fronds unfurl in spring a deep orangy copper shade, keeping their hue until the hot weather of summer gradually turns them green. Then in autumn, they burnish bright copper again. 1 to 2 ft. Long, they are truly eye-catching in any setting, from a single plant among the hostas and heucheras to a big sweep of color in a woodland area. Brilliance is a fine choice for the garden, because once established it's virtually self-maintaining, looking terrific every season of the year. It reaches 2 ft. High and wide, with a big impact.

      these ferns came a lot smaller than I would have expected for a $15 plant, but I'm sure they will look great next year! The packaging was great, everything was propped with newspaper and then taped up, there were no spills and everything was safe!
