Description

Description: A light green fern with thin fronds about 2 inches wide and 1.5 feet long. It has two morphologies, the main fronds which every leaflet is attached to the frond, but not each other like in licorice fern, and another single stemmed frond that looks different from the others in that it has far less leaflets and none of the leaflets touch at all.

Habitat: Growing in moist loamy soil with a thick layer of duff in full shade in the under story of a Douglas-fir dominant forest. Growing among maidenhair fern and sword fern.

Weather: Drizzly, 60F, overcast and wet.

Description

Description: A lovely fern, with palmate fronds and thin, black stems and primary veins. Leaflets are oblong and have an interesting margin. It starts entire on one side, but the then becomes crenate on the other side, giving them the appearance of a cartoon wing. Each leaflet has short petioles that lift them from the main stem.

Habitat: Living on moist, loamy soil a with thick duff layer, in full shade under the canopy of a primarily Douglas-fir forest.

Weather: Drizzly, 60F, overcast sky and wet.
