This fern is about three feet tall, the picture was taken today Jan. 30th. I think it normally would have died back to the ground but the weather has been so warm just some of the leaves have turned brown.
Well, for me it doesn't fit with the Ostrich Fern which has a very pronounced "shuttlecock" growth. They grow very much like a badminton shuttlecock and this one seems to lack that. I haven't found what it is though and think it might be a Dryopteris. Is this in the wild?
