Here's a bracken colony in northern Michigan. It went on and on. There are other shorter herbs that have adapted to the deeper shade in these colonies. Two of my favorites are starflower and wintergreen. Bracken patches are good places to look for wintergreen berries. Yum! A lot of other people, particularly in east Asia, say yum when they see the young fronds. Traditional Korean dishes, according to Wiki, are gosari(namul) and bibimbap. Gotta love the language, but I haven't had an opportunity to try the food. Maybe Sun Ok can bring some the next time we have a potluck (please!).
