Dryopteris erythrosora (Autumn Fern)

8.00

A spectacular fern from Japan which more than lives up to its pseudonym with a sensational display of color. Exotic coppery-pink croziers unroll into pinkish honey-green fleshy fronds which mature to a rich leathery green. Cold weather brings a hint of russet to this peerless evergreen. As if all this display were not enough it produces bright red sori on the frond reverse in late summer. Most of the plants in the trade circulating as D. bissetiana, D. hondoensis, and D. purpurella are forms of D. erythrosora.
