The Beauty of the Fern Presented in 50 Quality Photos

A fern is a very special plant. Ferns have stems, leaves, and roots, but they do not have seeds or flowers. They reproduce via spores.

Ferns first appear in the fossil record 360 million years ago.
Fern species live in a wide variety of habitats, from remote mountain elevations, to dry desert rock faces, to bodies of water or in open fields and in moist shady woodland.

They are often featured in mythology, medicine, and art.
