Description
A native of China and Japan, Autumn Fern is a close relative of many of our North American natives. However, it is one of the few ferns which show a color change by season. In spring, the unfurling fronds are coppery pink and yellow, then green in summer, then rusty brown in autumn. For even more color, spore cases, which form on the reverse of the fronds, are bright red.

Autumn Fern is a most interesting plant for home gardens in partial or full shade. Only normal moisture is necessary.
