    I apologize for posting a question about a plant that wasn't in the UBCBG (or isn't, to my knowledge, there). I shot this last weekend at the VanDusen near the Meconopsis Dell. I'm fairly good with flowering plants, but not so good with ferns, and have no reference materials to hand. Any help in identifying it would be greatly appreciated (see attachment).

    Yours,

    Brian Watson

    Looks like a bird's-nest fern, Asplenium nidus...?
    A. scolopendrium, maybe? (Hart's-tongue fern)

    If outdoors, Asplenium scolopendrium.

    Asplenium nidus is a tropical plant.

    Yes, Michael, I was thinking either A. scolopendrium or A. scolopendrium var. americanum.
