- Any of several coarse ferns, of genus Pteridium, that forms dense thickets; often poisonous to livestock
- An area of countryside heavily infested with this fern
Used in a sentence:
- The forest was thick with bracken and other plants making travel both slow and dangerous for anything might sneak up upon them if they were quiet enough.
I see the word bracken I think sea weed, for some reason. And yet it turns out to a land weed instead. It grows very very quickly and is apparently poisonous to some, although the Wikipedia article has some conflicting information about that. Either way if you need a word for lots of plants bracken will do you just right.
