Though all autumn ferns have beautifully-coloured new growth, 'Brilliance' offers new fronds that are a particularly bold copper-red. It is easy to grow and evergreen to semi-evergreen depending on the coldness of our winters. It tolerates a wide range of garden conditions, including extreme drought, once established.
