    Hello Everyone,

    Do you know what this fern is? It makes irregular-looking tufts, and each leave has its own little fingers that stick out along the rim of the leaf.

    Location : Mount Seymour
    Elevation : 1000 to 1100 m
    Season : Late July

    Jason

    Bracken does not consist of basal clumps of plume-like fronds.
