Hello this fern is growing out of a sandstone cliff down a sheltered alley in Hastings. No direct sunlight. Photo taken from fire escape, I couldn’t Get closer than this would need very long ladder or scaffolding. I can’t find anything similar in identification pictures. The fronds are about 3 feet long.

Snow and the Ferns at Harlow Carr

There have  been a few ferns that have stuck out at Harlow Carr recently amidst all the snow and freezing temperatures we have had. And even one that gives a more exotic feel in cold days, that being the Blechnum chilense! Also Woodwardia fimbriata has remained a great wintergreen addition in areas without much above ground.  These have both been great tough and beautiful ferns so far along the streamside this winter!
