Blechnum penna marina

Alpine Water Fern

This is a gorgeous, evergreen, groundcover fern from South America. It slowly spreads by rhizomes to make a weed-smothering mass of vertical 4 to 8 inch fronds in cool, moist soil. Not overly wet, despite its common name. New fronds are often bronzy-pink to orange. Also can be grown as a house plant. Not bothered by pests or disease. If you can find a happy spot for this charmer, it will quickly become one of your favorites. Picture taken at Chase Gardens by Mikey Chance.
