Asplenium Scolopendrium, commonly known as the hart's tongue fern, is a distinctive and elegant fern species with a unique appearance. This evergreen fern is native to Europe and is recognised for its long, undivided fronds that resemble the tongue of a deer or hart, hence the common name. The fern forms a rosette of arching, rich brught green fronds that are leathery, glossy, and can reach lengths of up to 60 centimetres.

One of the notable characteristics of Asplenium Scolopendrium is its adaptability to various growing conditions. It thrives in both shaded and partially shaded environments, making it a versatile choice for woodland gardens, shady borders, or even rockeries. The fern is often found in limestone-rich habitats, showcasing its tolerance to different soil types.

In terms of its ornamental value, Asplenium Scolopendrium adds an architectural element to gardens with its striking, strap-like fronds. The glossy, dark green foliage remains attractive throughout the year, contributing to the garden's visual appeal even during the winter months. The hart's tongue fern is suitable for both formal and informal garden designs, and its adaptability to various light conditions makes it a versatile choice for landscaping.
