Blechnum Brasiliense 'Volcano'. Dwarf Brazilian Tree Fern.

The Blechnum Brasiliense 'Volcano' Fern has only recently been introduced into the UK. It is a delicate and elegant plant and a perfect addition to providing a tropical look for an area prone to shade for much of the day. Stiff pinnate fronds have a slightly 'crimped' appearance and gracefully arch, forming an attractive symmetrical rosette with new fronds emerging an intense pinkish-red colour before turning to more of a bronze before finally turning to a glossy green.   
Relatively fast growing, it will develop a slender trunk as it matures. A very interesting and pretty plant these ferns also make a stunning pot plant.
