This form of the Autumn Fern can produce bulbils in the fronds but still has the superb bronzed yellow and orange foliage.  A good, tidy fern to 60cm. Decent soil in shade, tolerates summer dryness.

Dryopteris erythrosora var. prolifica tries to be evergreen but needs a sheltered site to manage it!  The new fronds are well out by April so unlike some other semi-deciduous ferns you are not waiting all summer for it to look good again.
