I posted this fern a few months ago and received one response that it was possibly a Bracken Fern. After some further research I am not totally sure since most Bracken Ferns tend to be 3-forked and this fern grows single stems that reach well over 3 feet long. It’s just such a large fern I would really like to know exactly what it is. It may very well be a Bracken Fern but are there different varieties of Bracken Ferns?
This is possibly a wild fern as it was growing naturally along the edge of my house. I live in SW Atlanta and have only seen this fern growing in my yard and a park a few blocks away. I Thought that I would repost with new pictures now that the fern is fully grown. Any ideas?
