Blechnum brasiliense- Brazilian Tree Fern

A beautiful fern, not strictly a tree fern though it does produce a trunk over time. Noted for the intense red of the new fronds, slowly maturing to green.
Prefers warm conditions and moist acidic/neutral soil. Light shade produces the best colour. Hardy to around -7C. Below 0c the fronds will blacken so best brought inside over winter.
