Follow us on Instagram! mgnvsocialmediaThis morning’s « mystery plant » post showed portions of lingering dried fertile fronds of Ostrich Fern (Matteuccia struthiopteris), a native fern indigenous throughout Canada and the northeastern United States. Locally, it can be found along the Potomac River in Arlington and Fairfax Counties. Mature brown fertile fronds persist from the previous summer and release their spores in early spring. #mastergardener #mysteryplant #mgnv #ostrichfern #matteucciastruthiopterisWelcome to the eighth week of our mystery photo series. You may see these feathery forms on Mystery Plant #8 in early spring. Do you recognize them? Check back this afternoon to confirm the plant’s identity and learn more about its habit and care from posts throughout the coming week. #mastergardener #mysteryplant #mgnv
