Description

Found on the sidewalk leading to the longhouse garden. It feels great to stroll through the garden on a sunny day and see how all the plants have transitioned from the summer season to the fall. The fern is large, mature and about three feet tall. It's leaves have a great stiff texture, a nice dark green color, and are about eight inches wide at its widest point.

Description from Wikipedia

Pteridium aquilinum (bracken, brake or common bracken), also known as "eagle fern," is a species of fern occurring in temperate and subtropical regions in both hemispheres. The extreme lightness of its spores has led to its global distribution.
