Soft Shield fern is a Semi-evergreen found abundant in Ireland, southwestern Great Britain, western France and northwest Iberia, where it benefits from the combination of mild winters and moist summers, but also occurs more locally north to northern Scotland and east to the Crimea and Turkey; in the Mediterranean it usually grows at high altitudes. It grows in woodlands, often but not always on steep slopes. Grows well in most cool, fertile, moist, humus-rich, shaded soils. Ideal for woodland gardens
