'Brilliance' is a more colorful variety of the Autumn fern. Gorgeous coppery-orange new foliage emerges as the fronds unfurl in the spring. Fronds age to a lustrous dark green color and then to a more russet tone in the fall. Best coloration is seen when grown with either early morning or evening sun.
