Native species that occur at some of the highest elevations (above 3000 m) include: Asplenium adiantum-nigrum (Aspleniaceae), Cystopteris douglasii (Cystopteridaceae), Pellaea ternifolia (Pteridaceae), and Polystichum haleakalense (Dryopteridaceae).
Our common fern, Dryopteris filix-mas, although rather coarse in appearance, is exceptionally hardy and looks particularly good growing from a rocky crevice while the evergreen Asplenium adiantum-nigrum is a fine plant all year round.
