Dryopteris erythrosora is a semi-evergreen fern to 75cm. It forms a neat clump of coppery pink fronds when young. A group of 3 or 5 planted in a shady corner will bring it to life. An ideal plant for the fern lover to use at the front of a shady border or fernery.. The slender stems are covered with deep brown hairs adding further textural interest. It is a low maintenance plant needing simple maintenance of removal of dead and damaged fronds in autumn, followed by cutting back hard in early spring before new fronds appear. Available as a 2L plant.
