Blechnum penna-marina – Alpine water fern

Blechnum penna-marina is an excellent evergreen groundcover fern.  It will do well in shade or almost full sun if provided with enough water.  Fronds emerge a deep salmon color and darken to a glossy, rich green.  This fern is very versatile.  It will do well in a sunny alpine setting, in pots on your patio or in your woodland garden.  It looks especially nice when planted among rocks or logs.
