Athyrium filix-femina   Lady Fern CCC DD N

Athyrium filix-femina

This fern flourishes in many different habitats (including my garden) and it is recognisable by the delicate light green fronds and the C shaped indusia (pouch containing sporangia) under the fronds.

There are very few places where this fern does not grow in the British Isles and Ireland.
