Hard fern, Blechnum spicant, has tough leathery, glossy fronds. These are ladder-shaped, and older fronds form a loose rosette around the more upright central ones. It provides year-round interest for a shady spot and works well with other shade-loving, woodland plants. It can also be used in dry stone walls and rock gardens. The Royal Horticultural Society has given it its prestigious Award of Garden Merit (AGM).
Grow Blechnum spicant in well-drained soil in partial to full shade. Mulch annually with leafmould.

I have a fern by my compost bin, but l don't know which sort it is, it looks like the lady fern but it's not very delicate, tough leaves but they don't die back so it's evergreen so l'm wondering wether it could be the hard fern, l've had it some years now and l think it is really beautifull.
