Stands Up to Drought and Spreads Beautifully!

This evergreen fern is hardy and easy to grow.

If you have grown and loved Brilliance Autumn Fern, you'll welcome the arrival of Radiance, its beautiful "spring color" cousin. If you're new to the world of hardy, evergreen, drought-resistant ferns, you're in for a long-lasting treat for the shade border and woodland garden!

Radiance is a hardy fern with evergreen fronds and a slowly spreading habit. Very adaptable, it lives a long time, gradually increasing in size and beauty in the garden. But the best part is the spring foliage. Each long, elegant frond unfurls in dazzling shades of red and rose!

And Radiance keeps its rosy tones for many weeks, until the warm weather of summer sets in and turns them green. However, the summer, fall, and winter color is pleasing too, with these triangular fronds attracting interest (and compliments!) in the partly to fully shaded garden.

Expect Radiance to reach about 18 to 30 inches high and to spread 2 feet or more within a few sesons. This is a perennial to pamper the first season, then let go -- it is quite drought-tolerant once established. Winter weather presents few problems, but if any fronds are damaged, just cut them away in late winter or earliest spring. Radiance will bounce right back! Zones 5-8.
