Black Tree Fern

Two photos of the same black tree fern. Dunedin Botanic Garden, New Zealand.
Photo 1 : taken 09 Dec 2020 ~~/~~ Photo 2 : taken 25 Oct 2020

Entirely coincidental I took both from a similar position. I find it interesting to see the development of the big new frond during the intervening period.

Click on either photo to enlarge.


Cyathea medullaris or mamaku.
— trunks up to 20 m, bearing fronds up to 5 m in length.
