Crown Fern Blechnum discolor

This New Zealand endemic is widely distributed in North, South, Chatham and Stewart Islands, sometimes becoming the dominant understory plant in coastal montane forests. It is present in a wide variety of forest types from dry lowland to wet mountain to Stewart Island rainforest. The characteristic shape of a near vertical array of hard sterile fronds gives this fern its appearance of a tiara or crown.
