A group of about 6 sword ferns on a slope going down from a trail in Redwood Canyon at Pepperwood. There were some large Redwood trees right nearby them, and the area was shady. Some of the leaves were damaged, most likely from being eaten by bugs.
The weather outside was cool and an overcast. We were in a riparian area with redwood trees. This plant was found under a canopy.
