Sterile, densely formed fronds of Blechnum spicant, known as Deer or Hard Fern, provide year-round greenery for shade and afternoon shade planters and gardens. Upright, fertile fronds that appear in the spring and summer are narrower and less densely formed, adding textural interest. The Deer Fern pairs well with other shade-loving plants such as hellebores, hostas, and shade-tolerant heucheras.
