Christmas Fern

Polystichum acrostichoides

Description:

Fiddlehead of unknown type of fern. I wasn't sure whether to include the last photo, because it may not be the same type of fern (they were there at the same time).

Habitat:

Wooded area

Notes:

Named for the shape of the leaves, where they bump out a bit like a Christmas stocking (see last photo).

Thank you! That appears to be the kind, at least of the last fern I took a picture of.
