Dryopteris 'Jurassic Gold'
Dryopteris wallichiana 'Jurassic Gold' (alpine wood fern) is a deciduous (semi evergreen in frost free climates) fern that has bright gold new leaves in the spring. Dryopteris wallichiana 'Jurassic Gold' puts on a stunning color display in the spring with its bright gold new growth and it a fantastic addition to the woodland garden. Dryopteris wallichiana 'Jurassic Gold' is great in mass plantings but could be used as a specimen. Reports seem to indicate that Dryopteris wallichiana 'Jurassic Gold' is probably happier in climates with cooler night temperatures, but we have had no issues growing it in our greenhouses in North Carolina. jPlants we ship did stayed mostly evergreen this winter in our greenhouses and will look best if cut the old leaves off when you plant them.
