Japanese Shield Fern

Dryopteris Erythrosora

A semi evergreen fern, the Japanese shield fern has softly feathered leaves which are often pink when young.

The fern is clump forming in its growth habit and enjoys partial or full shade positions in a garden. It is a great plant for any aspect but will need a more sheltered spot. If the temperature drops below -10’c the plant will require frost protection.

Dryopteris erythrosora is also a good plant for poorer soils although it will require watering if in a dry position.

How your gift is doing good

At the Eden Project we believe plants are important to the future of us and our planet. Through our gardens and Biomes we inspire visitors to reconnect with the natural world around them - and to want to help preserve it. The money you spend in the Eden webshop goes towards our environmental education programmes.

Over 40,000 under-16s from 900 different schools visit our 'living classroom' each year. They get a unique opportunity to delve deep into the rainforest and form the vital connection with their environment that inspires them to want to conserve it.

Find out more about our plans to build a canopy walkway to continue our educational work around rainforests.
