Positive MotherNature4 On Oct 28, 2004, MotherNature4 from Bartow, FL (Zone 9a) wrote:

The common Swamp fern is also called Saw Fern because of the fine serrations along the pinnae margins. The sori are arranged in two lines parallel to the mid vein of each pinna.

It is a most attractive fern with erect, bright green fronds. The new fronds are coppery pink.
