Golden Mist Fern

Dryopteris labordei, the Golden Mist wood fern, is an Australian discovery of what has also been classified as Dryopteris indusiata. Totally unusual orange/salmon new fronds distinguish this choice selection. Like many ferns with colorful new growth the foliage will eventually become a rich and vivid green at maturity. The lower pinnae have downward pointing pinnules giving the entire triangular frond a dagger like appearance. Evergreen with a broad habit “Golden Mist” is not particular about soils and will reach 18 to maybe 24 inches in light shade. It is new on the market but has been successfully tested in Zones 5-8.
