Overview
Warbonnet
03/03/10

 

The most striking feature of the warbonnet fern is the iridescent blue of the leaves, which contain abundant anthocyanin pigments. These pigments are light-reactive chemicals that reflect blue light and give color to the blue and purple flowers and fruit.  The warbonnet fern is among the many bioluminescent flora of Pandora.  Credit: James Cameron’s Avatar: The Game
