Blechnum Discolor has bright green, upright fronds forming a crown shape. With age, this variety forms a short trunk and establishes an increasing colony around it. Long, dark brown fertile fronds stand upright in the centre of the crown.
This fern is best suited to dappled light - although will tolerate a sunny situation provided the soil is kept moist. It will cope with a wide range of conditions, including dry, frosts, and full sun to shade. Fairly hardy but would need some protection from the cold where temperatures dip below -3C for a period of time.
