How to use "Basket fern" in context?
Basket ferns (Dodonaea viscosa) are obligate epiphytes that grow on the outside of tree trunks and branches. The fronds are divided into a series of leaflets that are sharply toothed along the margins. The underside of the leaves is densely clothed with wool that can be very bulky. The fern is easy to identify because of its characteristic arrangement of pinnate leaves and its dark green color.
