A Small Sturdy Gem

This little fern over the last couple months has made me smile each time I see it. Through all the horrible weather its always a lush little gem that’s fun to discover up in a  dark woodland corner. Its been happy growing in a log accompanied by a Hepatica. Once named Blechnum penna -marina ‘Cristatum’ , I believe it may go by Austroblechnum penna-marina ‘Cristatum’ now. Really only the size of my hand it makes a quiet statement.
