The name of this common and widespread plant is derived from its long tongue-shaped leaves with pointed ends. Hart is an old name for a deer. This fern can be found growing in sheltered damp habitats such as woods, on hedge banks, in walls and in ditches.

Growing adjacent to it (bottom left) is Black spleenwort (Asplenium adiantum-nigrum).
