Fortune's Holly-Fern

Fortune's Holly-Fern (Cyrtomium fortunei, 贯众). 

Wherever there is plenty of shade and there are small cracks in the rocks or masonry on Yuelu Mountain, one invariably discovers that old world fortune's holly-ferns have secured a foothold. Their evergreen leaves reach up to a two feet and, unlike those of many other ferns, they are easy to identify.
