RE: Antenna Fern


Hi Fernatics,

The photograph is definitely not of Dryopteris concolor. The appearance
is that of D. pilosa, but the latter is hairy. (Pilosa means 'covered
with soft hairs'). The one on the photograph seems not to be covered
with hairs. The South African is  D. pilosa var. gemmifera. A plant as
happy as the one on your photograph, would have showed this
characteristic by now. The plants I know from the Waterberg area, are
definitely hairy.

It would be very interesting to know what it actually is.

Frondly regards

Jolanda Nel
