Brilliance Autumn Fern

Dryopteris erythrosora ‘Brilliance’ 



Defined by brilliant orange color, pops of red and classic feathery foliage, the Brilliance Autumn Fern lives up to its name. And since this brilliant perennial is virtually carefree, there’s no guesswork and no hassle involved…no matter where you plant it. 

Simply place it in any shady area in your garden and watch it thrive. Unlike similar varieties, it doesn’t require sunlight or a specific soil type to thrive. From dry, arid spots in your yard to low-lying, cool spaces with excess shade, the Brilliance Autumn Fern delivers unmatched growth. Its dramatic and vibrant semi-evergreen foliage is even resistant to pesky deer. 

So, it’s the solution for problem areas in your garden. It’s perfect for master gardeners and black thumbs alike because it gives you the good looks of a low-growing, dense perennial without the hassle. The only work for you is deciding where you want to plant it! 


Place in an area with dappled shade and dig a hole large enough to accommodate its roots. The Brilliance Autumn Fern Plant grows and spreads easily via underground stems. Any area with partial sun to partial shade or full shade (about 3 to 5 hours of sunlight per day) is ideal. 


Rainfall should be enough to sustain your Brilliance Autumn Fern Plant unless you experience severe long-term drought. In that case, simply check the soil for dryness about 4 inches down.
