Blechnum penna-marina

We only occasionally have this species in stock so if you wanted one it would be best to let us know before ordering. If we are showing a picture of this plant with the order number showing then its in stock available in small numbers only.
It is quite similar to Blechnum spicant but smaller, the new  fronds come up tinged pink which mature to a deep  glossy green. As with other Blechnum species it produces vertical fertile fronds which are a little longer than the sterile ones. The plant quickly forms a mat on creeping rhizomes and is good for trough or a rockery.
Blechnum  are mostly evergreen ferns with erect or creeping rhizomes and simply pinnate leathery fronds, fertile fronds usually erect, the sterile often spreading.
Penna-Marina is evergreen fern forming a mat of spreading pinnate, dark green sterile fronds to 15cm in length, with narrower erect fertile fronds, the young fronds often reddish.
