Description

Family Dryopteridaceae
Originating from China and Japan.

  • A strikingly coloured fern with a continual display of orange/red tinted new fronds.
  • Semi-evergreen foliage forms dense slowly spreading colonies.
  • Adaptable to most soil soil conditions and sun or shade.

Forming delicate and elegant spreading mounds of rich green fronds with a lacy character, belying its tough and hardy nature, thriving even in full sun. Its dark copper new leaves, mature to a pinky copper hue, before turning to a dark green colour. The intricate feather-shaped foliage forms bold leaflets, arranged densely on bipinnate stems, which themselves grow in profusion, making for a striking plant.

Over time, it forms colonies of ground-covering semi-evergreen foliage, making it ideal for woodland, jungle, and oriental gardens. Easy to grow in all soil types, and adaptable to all positions, but best in dappled shade with damp, humus-rich conditions.

Height and spread after 1 – 2 years 50cm x 50cm
Mature height and spread after 5 – 10 years 1m x 1m
