Amber ferns were a species of plant native to the Outer Rim world of Mandalore. Yellow in color, amber ferns were fragile and grew in clumps that littered the forests of galek trees on Mandalore.
When Mand'alor Boba Fett buried the remains of his deceased father and daughter—Jango Fett and Ailyn Vel, respectively—on Mandalore, he did so in a grove of galek trees where amber ferns grew in abundance.
Behind the scenesEdit
Amber ferns first appeared in Star Wars in the Legacy of the Force novel, Legacy of the Force: Sacrifice, written by author Karen Traviss and published May 29, 2007. The following year, in 2008, The Complete Star Wars Encyclopedia featured an informational entry on amber ferns.
