Osmunda regalis ‘Pupurescens’
A smaller Royal Fern. Forms a large clump of long and arching, deeply divided foliage, which changes colour constantly during the season providing wonderful interest. New red-purple fronds emerge in Spring and gradually turn to a bright green in Summer, further turning then to a yellow and finally bronze in Autumn. Garden plant for flowerbed in moist or boggy soil in full or partial shade. Great groundcover fern. Will tolerate sun in a cooler area in constantly moist soil. Good for marginal planting. Height and spread (approx) - 120 cm x 100 cm.
