Blechnum novae-zelandiae (syn capense)

Latin Name Blechnum novae-zelandiae

Common Name Kiokio

Once formerly known as Blechnum capense, Blechnum novae-zealandiae is one of the most widely distributed species of ferns in New Zealand – growing abundantly on clay banks along roadsides and rivers. The long cascading fronds (up to 2m long and 50cm wide) are a bright pink colour when new, and turn light green and then darker green as they mature.
It will tolerate almost any conditions – although the fronds can be much smaller if in full sun.
