Hi folks,

I have also encountered ferns with very red frond colour, usually during and 
just after unrolling.

Usually Doodia species, but Blechnum novaezelandiae also. In this URL


(Don't read the words - just look at the picture - it's an advert.)

there is an image of a frond of Blechnum novaezelandiae photographed in 
Okarito forest, south Westland, New Zealand, not more than 200m above 
sea-level. It was in a shady spot at the base of a road cutting in rock where 
any suggestion presence of soil or nutrients would be largely illusory. The 
reason I took the shot was the outstanding colour. The image has been 
tweaked only to bring more light in than the original subject had.
