(ferns) Polypodium vulgare, summer-deciduous

Hi all,

Another contribution I posted yesterday that never made it to the Digest. 
Trying again.

Where I live, on the Port Hills of Christchurch, New Zealand, Polypodium 
vulgare is fairly recently new adventitive fern. It grows here on fractured rock
banks in a mist zone that gets quite dry in summer. I also have it growing in 

One feature it has that I have seen in only a few other species, is that it is
quite summer-deciduous. In the height of summer, you'd never know it lives

I'm curious to learn what its growth pattern is where it grows naturally.
