Fronds

Definition: The leaves of ferns. Fern fronds maybe uncut (undivided), once-cut (divided into subdivisions), twice-cut (divided into subdivisions twice-the subdivisions are themselves subdivided), or thrice-cut (divided into subdivisions three times-the subdivisions of the subdivisions are also subdivided!). Thrice-cut ferns are also called lacy ferns.
