Hard Fern

These ferns were very attractive and were numerous,particularly in the coniferous woods of North Wales we visited.

Their habit is interesting , they have two types of leaf frond.The basal area fronds fan out and are all sterile. The fronds in the centre that stand more upright are the fertile fronds.

This is the Hard Fern (Blechnum spicant)
