1), a small rosulate
herb found commonly in Venezuelan Andean moor .
The vegetative structures are glabrous-glaucescent showing basal leaves rosulate
, early-deciduous; the blades of rosette leaves (2-20 cm) are wavy-dentate or 1-2 pinnately lobed with broadly linear to filiform lobes; caulinar leaves (1-10 cm) sessile, linear, entire and base auriculate-lobed (Al-Shehbaz, 2010, 2012).
Most bromeliads belong to the phytotelm type with rosulate
ramets (spiny rosette-forming plants) where enough leaf litter and rainwater accumulate to support a varied fauna, including small amphibians, arachnids and insects (DEJEAN; OLMSTED, 1997; DIAS; BRESCOVIT, 2004; LAESSLE, 1961; WHEELER, 1921, 1942; WITTMAN, 2000).
It is obvious that the "herbaceous habit" also include nidiform, calathiform, rosulate
, and scandent corms, but these forms are uncommon or not found in Blechnum.
Leaves 17 to 20 in number, coriaceous, densely rosulate
, suberect, forming a funnelform rosette; sheaths ovate, 12-17 x 9.
2 C-D) is a saxicolous plant with rosulate
leaves, 60 cm long, 2 cm wide.
subshrubs, cushionforming herbs, acaulescent, rosulate
herbs and vines.
Leaves radical as well as cauline; radical ones rosulate
, linear to oblong-oblanceolate, 5-10 X 0.
Pink sundews are small, rosulate
, evergreen, perennial, insectivorous forbs, common in wet savannas, bogs and ditches in the coastal plain of the southeastern USA (Schnell, 1976).
Other frequent species within this vegetation-type are the succulent halophytes Arthrocnemum macrostachyum and Limbarda crithmoides; the rosulate
hemicriptophytes Limonium cossonianum, Limonium caesium, and Limonium santapolense, and other halophytes such as Halimione portulacoides or Frankenia corymbosa.

herb, forming large colonies, flowering 0.
Leaves alternate to rarely opposite, rosulate
, clustered at the branch apices to clustered in the axils of the old leaves; petiolate, sessile to sheathing at the base; blades entire, lyrate, pinnatisect to pinnately compound, unarmed to spiny, pinnately, palmately to three-veined, rarely parallel-veined, glabrous to pubescent.
