Interesting Plant: Lovely silver-tinged fern on campus of Oberlin College, Ohio

Update: Francesca H. reports that she believes these plants are Anthyrium niponicum “Ghost” or “Pictum” (Dryopteridaceae). Thanks Francesca! It will be great to have more information when searching for these.

Oberlin College Visit - Ferns

I took the opportunity of a college visit with my son to take a lot of photos of the campus and any interesting sites I saw there. Right outside the college admission office were these amazing ferns. The silver-tinged leaves caught my attention immediately. I have no idea what variety they are, as they weren’t identified in any way, but I know I will keep an eye out for something similar in the future, for sure.
