Blunt-lobed Grape Fern
Botrychium oneidense (Sceptridium oneidense)
Blunt-lobed grape fern can easily be confused with the variety of cut-leaved grape fern that has smooth leaf edges. Blunt-lobed grape fern tends to have round tips to its fronds, and it stays pure green in winter, while cut-leaved grape fern turns bronze-green. In Connecticut, blunt-lobed grape fern is much rarer than cut-leaved grape fern.
