Sword Ferns (Polystichum munitum)

The sword ferns are in their prime right now and look magnificent. Their fronds are close to four feet long and stand tall and fresh looking.  There are areas in our forest where we can look 500 feet in all directions and it is a sea of ferns.  As the season progresses they will start to droop and become more of a ground cover.

    • Yes, a very good year for us too. I used to pick ferns to make a bit of cash and this would be an excellent harvest. “Sea of ferns” – well, when you don’t live on the beautiful Oregon coast you have to take what you get. 😉
