Description

The sword fern was surrounded by tan oaks rather than redwood trees. It was growing on the side of a hill right next to the trail. The rachis length of one frond is about 30 cm long. It has serrated and alternate pinnae. From the crown to the tip of a frond the sworn fern it is 50 cm in length. The sword fern has about 10 dead fronds and 2 alive fronds. One of the alive fronds is fertile and has indusia (indicating it is a first year frond). The sori length is a little less than the rachis length. The fern is located directly below a tanoak and bay trees.

These ferns, about 7" long, were growing on a rocky, sunny cliff beside the gravel road leading up to Mt. Walker. Other ferns, including Licorice and Sword, were growing on the same cliff.
