Does anyone know what type of fern this is?
Thanks in advance! :)
Christmas fern. Polystichum acrosticoides.
Doesn't quite look like christmas fern to me. Appears the fronds might be more than once pinnate. Would help to see a whole frond by itself (removed at ground level), both front and back.
Sorry for the late response, I did not receive notification of the initial response. I have attached a few more pictures. Thank you!
The prior pictures was the back of a frond with spores. Here is the front...
More of fern...
Last one... Thank you!
Fairly certain that the second set of photos are of a totally different fern.
Exact same fern. I promise. Unless my front steps moved and planted itself next to a different fern. Dryopteris erythrosora...I think so.... Thank you!
