  Silver Fern
by Kate-Me

The silver fern is New Zealand's floral emblem, and features on many of their souvenirs as well.
From above, the fern looks fairly much like any other, but if you lift the frond and look underneath, you will see that it really is silver!
It's said to shine quite well at night too.
