Long live the king fern

I wouldn’t call myself a royalist, but it seemed fitting to make a pic out of king fern (green) and crown fern (black fertile fronds). Supporting cast: yellow kōwhai petals, black kōhūhū flowers and white clematis petals. Scientific names: Ptisana salicina (king fern), Lomaria discolor (crown fern), Sophora tetraptera (kōwhai), Pittosporum tenuifolium (kōhūhū), and Clematis paniculata. All NZ natives.

Yellow kōwhai petals
