Autumn Fern Shrub For Sale Online

The Dryopteris Autumn Fern shrub is an unparalleled option for a vibrant fern ground cover or landscape border. It is easy to grow and the fern thrives in a variety of planting sites.

Its new fronds reveal themselves in striking shades of orange-red that change to copper-red before maturing to the lush deep green it maintains through the summer season. The Autumn Fern’s growth process is both beautiful and breathtaking and a real treat to watch!

This unique dwarf fern is known as an accent fern and is an excellent choice for ground covers or borders in any shade garden or landscape. The Autumn fern perennial plant is perfect in so many ways!


The Autumn Brilliance Fern grows best in part shade to full shade and does not react well to hot full sun. Shield the fern if planted in an area in any kind of sunlight. It is drought tolerant once established.

The evergreen fern performs best in moist, rich, deep, well-drained, organically supplemented soils. It will do best in slightly acidic, wet soils that are consistently moist soils. Drier soils will not be able to maintain the bright orange fern.

It can be planted in pots to give that porch or patio the perfect accent. The bright red leaves that look a copper color stand out tremendously in woodland gardens and containers alike. Then the Dryopteris erythrosora brilliance autumn ferns leaves turn to a shiny dark green and will compliment your landscape.

The Autumn fern grows best across the United States in USDA hardiness zones 4-9. The Autumn fern size can grow up to 2 feet tall and 1.5 feet wide making it a perfect small plant. It is extremely low maintenance and easy to care for. The ornamental fern also has excellent pest and disease resistance.
