Description / Dryopteris 'Jurassic Gold'

What is it about ferns? They seem so wild and exotic, so mysterious, the way they seek out the cool dark places, their fronds, delicate and lacy, gently unfurling in shadow. Yet, plant them in a pair of urns flanking a stately entrance, and they transform, becoming formal, aristocratic, grand, even. Not many plants are quite so versatile. Maybe the fern is because, as one of the oldest plants on Earth, they have learned to adapt, in one form or another, since well before the days of dinosaurs.

Jurassic Gold is a majestic specimen plant, unique among modern ferns. Young shoots emerge golden orange, and the fronds fade to golden yellow, eventually turning green with age. Testing shows this plant to be pest and disease free, and once established, it's drought tolerant. Cut back dead fronds in winter.
