Dryopteris ‘Brilliance’


Hardy Ferns Few plants impart such a light, airy, cooling effect, or provide such a range of textures for the garden as Ferns. They like a light, highly organic soil with ample moisture during their growing season, more so as the plants are becoming established. Our plants are of northern ancestry for extra hardiness, and perform better and better with age. Do not plant too deep; set the crowns at or just below soil level. A year-round mulch is recommended.

Dryopteris erythrosora 'Brilliance' The long, shiny, elegant 1½- to 2-foot fronds of the Autumn Fern unfurl bright copper in spring, then go green for summer, and burnish russet-orange again in fall! Evergreen, tolerant of heat, humidity, and cold, and very adaptable to dry shade, this Fern is one of the easiest and most beautiful garden accents available. Water and feed it heavily the first year, then let it go—it withstands even the shade beneath trees, yet can take morning sun without burning or greening out! 1-quart container.

Athyrium 'Ghost' A terrifically versatile fern, outstandingly beautiful in its own right as well as being the perfect foil for surrounding green- and blue-leaved plants. A cross between the Lady Fern and Japanese Silver-Painted Fern, it combines finely divided foliage, excellent upright habit, and silverygray fronds so luminous they appear to glow. Happily indifferent to soil type, and tolerant of more dryness than many other ferns. In multiple plantings, space them about two feet apart in partial to full shade. A wonderful groundcover or container choice, too! 1-quart container. Z 4-8 | part/full shade | H: 24-36", W: 18-24"

Athyrium ‘Lady in Red’

This showy native sends up a big clump of brilliant violet-red stems, held in a vase shape, from which long, lacy fronds unfurl. Easily the showiest Lady Fern we've ever grown, it tolerates heat and humidity and refuses to fade in summer! Red stems are especially effective against the yellow-colored fall fronds. 1-quart container. Z 5-8 | part shade | H: 18”, W: 36”

Matteuccia struthiopteris — Ostrich Fern One of the most popular Hardy Ferns, this tall, graceful native sets dense, rigid arching fronds. Amber to bronze autumn foliage color enhances the appeal. Certain butterflies feed on this fern, which is avoided by deer. Very easy to grow in a variety of light exposures, in the wild the Ostrich Fern is found in streambanks, thriving in very moist, rich soil. 1-quart container.
