Mexican Flowering Fern | Anemia mexicana
Anemia mexicana, or Mexican Flowering Fern is, unsurprisingly, native to Mexico, and additionally, parts of Texas. While the first plant of this plants name is straightforward, the “flowering” portion is a bit misleading, as ferns reproduce through spores, never “flowering” in the traditional sense. The Anemia genus bear both sterile and fertile fronds, and this plants upright fertile fronds are sometimes mistaken for flowers.
