Dryopteris filixmas

ferns reproduce through spores, they don’t have seeds and they don’t really have flowers.

ancient expressions of sincerity and allure. magickally they’re deemed as symbols of luck, riches, protection and also rainmaking.  ferns were sacred trees to the druids who used the uncurled fronds of Male fern gathered at Midsummer, dried and carried for good luck. roots were added to love potions and the fronds eaten by those embarking on love quests. seeds from the fern were believed to grant the power of invisibility, and when the fronds are burned on an outdoor fire they are supposed to draw rain.
