Fragile Fern

Cystopteris fragilis var.fragilis

This is a small, delicate bright yellow green fern appearing in early spring in rich hummocks in dry woods. There are two varieties that appear alike. The one shown is the var.fragilis and is less seen in the County than is var.mackayii which is somewhat larger with more triangular and fuller fronds.
