Blechnum Spicant is more commonly known as the Deer Fern or Hard Fern.
A native European forest fern, the Deer Fern is a hardy evergreen fern with attractive upright narrow fronds that are dark green in colour. Blechnum Spicant has a tidy habit and is easy to grow in a partially shaded area of the garden. However, this adaptable fern can also be grown as a houseplant and does well when pot grown. Popular for its undemanding nature and attractive looks, Hard Fern offers year-round interest in the garden. Additionally, Blechnum Spicant received the prestigious Award of Garden Merit by the Royal Horticultural Society, a sure sign that it will perform well in most UK gardens.

Height and Spread of Blechnum Spicant
Low-growing and compact, Deer Fern won’t grow over half a meter in height and half a meter in spread. 

How Hardy is Blechnum Spicant
A British native that is fully hardy in all of the United Kingdom and Europe, this tough little fern can survive even if the temperatures drop to 20 degrees Celsius below zero. When grown outdoors, Deer Fern is generally pest and disease free.

How To Use Blechnum Spicant
Due to its love for cool and shady spots, Hard Fern makes an excellent choice for dark corners and nooks of your garden. Similarly, it can be used to underplant trees and shrubs, or grown in containers to add interest to places that don’t have much light but would benefit having an evergreen architectural plant to add a touch of colour and texture.

How To Care For Blechnum Spicant
Blechum Spicant is not a fussy plant as long as it is planted in a cool and moist soil in full shade, it will thrive. It loves clay and loamy sites but will do well in most soils as long as its needs are met.
