Deer fern.  (Blechnum spicant).  PNW native-- really a native in most parts of N. America.  8-20" tall, 3 ft wide.  Partial to deep shade.  Humus rich (preferably with leaf mold), moist, acidic soil. Divide in spring, sow spores in late summer.  This baby thrives on neglect, so it sounds just right for me.
