Blechnum brasiliense 'Volcano'

24th September 2017

A new introduction, a form of Blechnum brasiliense with rich red new growth. It will grow to about 75cm tall and has been suggested for planters and sheltered gardens. Descriptions often start with phrases like "despite its tropical origins ...". Quite gorgeous, quite easily availabe, quite tender and now quite dead. Grow it as a houseplant (I wish I had been given that advice before I bought it - I would still have tried it but I might not have tried it quite so ruthlessly).
