Polypodium Vulgare

This species must surely be one of the toughest ferns I know, before we moved to Stoke Ash and had space to swing a cat or two we have been known to leave this species stuffed under a shelf on a trolley for the entire winter with very little light and only water if it rained, in the spring they looked amazingly healthy with such rough treatment .
It has a very basic frond type just simply pinnatifid,  quite similar to the native Blechnum though the fronds are wider.  Polypodium  species produce fronds later in the year than most ferns and are also evergreen, this one if planted in a rockery will grow over the rocks on branching rhizomes, it can be seen in areas of Wales and elsewhere that gets lots of rain growing in the branches of trees. 
British Native /  Evergreen.
