Pteridium aquilinum (Common bracken)



General Description

It is a plant that grows itself. We find it in Europe and Greece. It reaches a height of up to 1,5 m. It has puffed fusiform roots and feathered green triangular leaves, which in autumn get the color of rust. The name “eagle”, comes from the fact that the roots present a picture reminiscent of the shape of an eagle.
