This hybrid Shield Fern has fronds of bright coppery orange that mature to dark green as the plant ages. It contrasts well with Hostas.
Easily grown in average, medium, well-drained soil in part shade to full shade. It prefers moist, humusy, acidic soils with protection from wind. Brilliance is one of the best choices for landscapes because it is easy to maintain and offers changing colour throughout the growing season. It can be used as a tropical-looking groundcover, a specimen plant or a backdrop for shade-loving flowering perennials. It has no serious pest or disease problems, but does require evenly moist soil. If plants begin to dry out, they will wilt and change colour slightly as a warning they need more water.
