This fern is deciduous so all its fronds will die back in autumn, then fresh new growth appears again each spring.

  • Position: partial shade
  • Soil: moist, humus-rich soil
  • Rate of growth: slow-growing
  • Hardiness: fully hardy

    This striking deciduous fern has triangular-shaped fronds, which are coppery-red when young and slowly mature to dark green. One of our recommended plants, it needs plenty of moisture and contrasts beautifully with evergreen ferns and other woodland plants.

  • Garden care: Incorporate lots of well-rotted leaf mould, composted pine needles or garden compost into the planting hole. Cut back decayed fronds in winter to allow new growth to emerge.
