My New Favorite Fern

It's called Maidenhair Fern, or Adiatum pedatum.

I like the black stipe, and the way the fronds radiate from the main stem. I also like the softness of the fronds, and their green.

This one gives you an idea of how it radiates. I don't think the pictures do it justice, of course.

This is part of a stand. The trail was pretty narrow, so it wasn't possible to back up far enough to get a good over all view.

I don't recall having seen this in Seattle parks before. I could well have missed it, and just noticed it now. It grows in climates similar to North Beach, so it can grow there if it isn't already.
