Eventual Plant Size


Dryopteris erythrosora ‘Brilliance’ is a superb selection of the Japanese Shield fern already a beautiful fern, ‘Brilliant’ has increased colours to the large glossy leaves with a range of oranges and pale reds showing as each frond develops in size as it grows ultimately becoming a deep shiny green. 

Dryopteris erythrosora ‘Brilliance’ is also largely evergreen making a slowly spreading clump up to 60cm high making a handsome specimen fern. Best planted in fertile moisture retentive soil, I add lots of organic compost when planting, where it can grow into a fair sized specimen reasonably fast. 

For best results plant in a sheltered position away from strong winds in dappled shade. Can also make an excellent container plant.
