I would like to purchase an easy to grow Fern,but i would like to own a true gold leafed one! does any one know of one to recomend? maybe you have one yourself,i dont know if there is one with true gold leaves or not iv heard one with the name gold but wondered if it really is golden yellow?



I grow (or grew) a lot of different ferns and whilst I have seen all shades of green and some metallic and reddish colours I have never seen a gold leafed fern.

Probably the nearest thing to a golden fern is dryopteris erythrosora, known as the autumn fern, which has golden tints for most of the growing season

It is not a fern but it looks just like one have a google

golden dwarf Japanese Hinoki Cypress

if you plant it in sun it is quite golden in shade not so much. I think it will suit.
