Ophioglossum vulgatum 2022

I revisited the Ophioglossum vulgatum colonies at Ports creek, Hilsea Lines at the top of Portsmouth Island
These fields are maintained to allow the orchids to thrive so they are only mown once a year in the autumn
The Ophioglossums seem mostly to grow around the base of the hawthorn bushes
I found 6 colonies this year
These plants vary in size from less than an inch to the one below which was about 3 x 8 inches
