Lepidozamia peroffskyana, aka scaly zamia.
Looking down into the shady ravine...
As a PNW gardener anytime I see bromeliads in the ground I'm rather awestruck.
I think these are palm fruit? I couldn't find a label that matched up.
Stenochlaena tenuifolia, aka giant (!) vine fern. Damn.
Nice staghorn too...
Alsophila firma, aka Mexican tree fern.
I couldn't find an ID on the colorful fern, but it was nice to see a few pyrrosia in the mix.
It appeared a hanging staghorn had fallen to the ground.
I hope they were able to rescue it.
This cutie really caught my attention, no label though. Checking with Carlos Cruz (a connection the Amateur Bot-ann-ist made for me) he thought it might be Polypodium pyrrholepis, whatever it is I really really really want to grow it!
That looks like Pyrrosia hastata in the center...
And this fun character is phymatosorus grossus...
And that's a wrap on the Mildred E. Mathias Botanical Garden at UCLA. Do visit if you get a chance, I'll definitely return...
