Bracken heart

Bracken heart
Bracken (Pteridium) is a genus of large, coarse ferns. It is a prolific and abundant plant in the moorlands of Great Britain, where it is limited to altitudes of below 600 metres. It does not like poorly drained marshes or fen. It has been observed growing in soils from pH 2.8 to 8.6, a wide pH band. Bracken is a pernicious, invasive and opportunistic plant, taking over from the plants traditionally associated with open moorland and has out-competed characteristic ground-cover plants such as moor grasses, cowberry, bilberry and heathers.

It's hell to get rid of too but looks lovely when it's just unfurling as in your photo.

Well spotted and taken Amelia..........the green "heart" stands out very nicely from the background. Bracken makes such lovely shapes when it's growing!

Great colour contrast that makes the heart stand out from the background. Well spotted and well executed, Amelia. All the best, Joe

At this stage when just unfurling they look great, especially on the background of last year's dry bracken.

Well taken, Amelia, The 'unfurling' stage looks great - we also have (probably unrelated) bracken here.
