Botanical name Adiantum formosum
A common name Giant Maiden Hair Fern
JuvenileThis Adiantum formosum is growing at the base of a Sydney Blue Gum, Eucalyptus saligna. It is on a fairly popular thorough fare on a hill side for Wallablies, Scrub Turkeys and other inhabitants.
There is at least one location on Sassafras where this fern covers quite a large area on one very shady South facing slope, photo to follow.
