This is a rather large fern similar to what you see on the brecon beacon.In spring and summer the leaves are light green and erect. as in this photograph. Later the leaves are dark green to brown as the spores develop. Here I am growing it in a spot under thye budleja tree where it receives little light. It seems to be quite a tough plant and survives in an east facing area that other plants would not be able to grow..
