Dryopteris erythrosora 'Prolifica', also known as Lacy Autumn Fern, is a deciduous fern that is native to eastern Asia. This fern grows up to 60cm in height and spreads to about 45cm. It has delicate, lacy fronds that emerge a coppery-red colour in spring and mature to a bright green colour in summer. The fronds are triangular in shape and have a slightly arching habit. Lacy Autumn Fern prefers partial to full shade and moist, well-drained soil. It is a great addition to woodland gardens, mixed borders, or as a ground cover.
