Dryopteris erythrosora - narrow form (Autumn Fern - narrow form)

8.00

D. erythrosora has a wide range of variation within the species, including several named forms from the bold, bright broad fronds of cultivars like ‘Brilliance,’ to the extremely narrow and proliferous ‘variety prolifica.’ True ‘variety prolifica’ is excruciatingly narrow and produces bulbils on its fronds. Spore grown crops can show a huge range of variation and sometimes display indeterminate characteristics, such as this narrow form. In some ways it takes after ‘variety prolifica,’ sporting fronds that are narrower and often more irregularly cut than the typical autumn fern, but it is not reliably proliferous and may not produce any bulbils. Although it has narrower fronds, it has an upright 2-3’ habit like the typical autumn fern and the same brilliant red-orange new growth, making it a great addition of color and texture to any evenly moist shade garden.
