We love Autumn Ferns here in Tennessee. They are sometime called 'Brilliance Autumn Fern' that refers to the lustrous orange color of the newly emerging fronds which seem to glow against the backdrop of the shiny, dark green, mature fronds. This perennial shade fern is particularly nice when grown in woodland or Japanese gardens. In mild areas or with suitable protection, the Autumn Fern is evergreen. At maturity, this fern gets around 18" both tall and wide.
