Common Name | Autumn Fern
Popular Plant Non-CA Native | Pacific Nurseries
Non-CA Native
Dryopteris erythrosora is a finely divided, dark green, and semi-deciduous fern with a delicate appearance. When used as a groundcover, it’s very hardy, spreads slowly, and requires very little care. New fronds appear reddish when young and it prefers shady locations with loamy soil. It also tolerates clay soil but does poorly with salty air conditions. Growing to 18″ high with a spread up to about 24″, Dryopteris erythrosora is truly a no-maintenance plant that can complement the shady areas of your project.
