Ferns are an ancient line of plants that reproduce by spores rather than seeds and therefore do not produce flowers. Elizabeth Billings, daughter of Frederick Billings, planted many of the ferns on the hill next to the mansion not only for their beauty but also so she could study them.Some common fern species found within the park are the Christmas fern and the lady fern.
