Hi Lindsay, Welcome to All Things Plants! I'm not good at comparing photos but it sure looks like one I have: Bear's Paw Fern (Phlebodium aureum 'Blue Star')

You are very welcome LIndsay; you should add a photo or two to your lovely plant to the database.

That's not a 'Birds Nest Fern. It's a 'Blue Star Fern' Smiling

@Lee2018's fern ... I'm not sure but it reminds me of Cyrtomium, commonly called Holly Fern. We have a few listed here in our database: https://garden.org/plants/brow...

I was wondering if that was a Holly Fern. I have two out in the shade garden. *Blush*
