Dicranopteris linearis



Horticultural Notes

spreading and climbing fern          Uluhe is a dominant plant in the native landscape with its distinctive repeated branching of the terminal pair of leaves.[1] From a distance you see a lighter or yellow-green color where the masses of Uluhe cover the ground. This plant is one of the reasons you should not leave the trail, as it is very difficult to try to walk through. It’s tangled mass obscures holes and drop-offs.
