Dryopteris erythrosora Autumn Fern is a colorful groundcover with pink fiddleheads that turn coppery orange as they unfurl. Fronds age to a lustrous dark green and remain well into winter. New growth continues through the season giving a colorful tapestry effect of copper and green from Spring to late Fall.
