Deer fern

Blechnum spicant


Its fertile fronds are distinguished by their thin leaflets. Native to multiple continents including Africa and Europe.


Grows in shady, old-growth forest. Spotted in Mount Rainier National Park in the Grove of the Patriarchs.


Two years later, Grove of the Patriarchs is closed to the public due to flooding from the nearby Ohanapecosh River.

Thanks, Brian! I highly recommend it. There are tons of fungi and plants, as well as chances to see snakes. The air’s super clean too.

Great spotting Mauna! I haven't been to that trail. I guess I'll have to wait till it re-opens.
