We visited Longwood Gardens for the first time yesterday in Pennsylvania and I saw the largest rabbit foot fern I have EVER seen! Just look at this... I'm standing next to it for size comparison.

Another shot looking up. Quite eye catching. All I could do was stare for a while.

Mvule,
I took a picture of the sign, but it's not real clear. Sorry. This is the best I can do for the species name.

This was a favorite, but there was no sign with the name anywhere that I could see. If anyone knows, please post.
