Unidentified fern

Postby flightsaber » Sat Nov 08, 2008 10:14 pm

I found this fern on display at Florida State University in Tallahassee (See attached images). Does anyone know what it is?

that's not a fern. It's definitely an angiosperm.

I dunno about that. Kind of looks like a climbing fern.

It looks like it is a Dusty Miller Chrysanthemum.

Unless it's not a garden-variety plant... Still, somewhere in the Chyrsanthemum/Senecio/Artemesia/Centaurea world sounds reasonable.
