Button Fern

Cute fern native to New Zealand and deserving of its own post, Pellaea rotundifolia. [Hasty update: or is it Cranfillia fluviatilis, syn. Blechnum fluviatile?]. Beautiful to find this growing in the bush! We found it on our walk in Dunsdale Reserve on 05 January, 2022. Southland, New Zealand.

  1. A lovely, delicate fern – and great to see it growing in the wild. It looks really good alongside the other, differently shaped leaves. Nature is a very good garden designer!
