Plants with gorgeous iridescent leaves

Like the optical shimmer on a DVD, iridescent plants have structures in their leaves that naturally produce an electric blue-green optical effect. Many will grow in a typical garden or as house plants. Stewart McPherson shows off a few, including Stegolepis hitchcockii, Stegolepis lingulata, Elaphoglossum wurdackii, Microsorum thailandicum and Selaginella willdenowii.
