(Aka Blechnum spicant | hard fern)
It is native to Europe and western North America. They like moist, but not wet soil, with a good amount of humus. Deer nibble on them, hence the name.
It has two types of leaves. The sterile leaves have flat, wavy-margined leaflets 5 to 8 millimeters wide, while the fertile leaves have much narrower leaflets.
