    Description

    The forests and open fields of the Blue Ridge provide ideal growing conditions for a number of ferns. Since some of these are evergreen, ferns can be seen in the area during every month of the year. Ferns are old members of the plant kingdom, and fossil ancestors are common in slate, shale, and coal. All ferns belong to the Pteridophytes, a group that also includes mosses, horsetails, and quillworts. These plants do not produce flowers or seeds; they reproduce by means of spores.
