Austroblechnum microphyllum (syn. Blechnum microphyllum)


Add to wishlist Remove from wishlist
This petite Patagonian evergreen fern would make a lovely groundcover if planted in mass. Alternatively it plays nicely with crevices and can be a delight in a small easily seen location. Tightly spaced, glossy, pinnate sterile fronds grow to only about 5" and splay low to the ground while the more alien spore-bearing fertile fronds stand central and upright.
