About This Group

Mosses and ferns are the ultimate forest plants, growing in places of green, shady lushness or, in some cases, in sand and sun. These plants are diverse in size, color, shape, habitat, and locations. They can be found from the misty cliff sides to the drier beach edges.

In the language of flowers, ferns mean Magic, Fascination, Sincerity, and Confidence. This information was kindly provided by Marilyn Cornwell.

NOTE: We now include mushrooms and other fungi, algae, seaweed, lichens, molds, and liverworts in these images. Adding: Princess Pine, Lilies of the Valley, Wood Anemone flowers, Blue & White Bells & Woodland Trillium all forest beauties!
If you have images including these mysterious and amazing not-quite-green plants, please post them
