Have a bunch of them in the yard and I'd love to know exactly what they are. If you can help I'd appreciate it!

Looks like ostrich fern to me!


RE: Can you ID this fern?

I agree, Ostrich Fern (Matteucia struthiopteris)

Got it!

Thanks for the help guys! After checking out some other ostrich fern pics I'm certain that is correct.
