ID for a Fern please

Hi All, could someone help me to identify this fern, i think it might be a Royal Fern (Osmunda regalis) but not sure. 
It has been located in full sun before being moved to a shady spot under the pergola. It does produce white pale flowers early in the year and loses it's leaves in the winter.

Any help greatly appreciated, thanks in advance.

    Hi doushkajs. I don't think its a fern at all. I think it could be Rhus typhina dissecta.

    Or even Sorbaria.

    I agree it looks like Sorbaria Sorbifolia ‘Sem’.
  • Hi Ladybird4, it doesn't appear to be this one  Rhus typhina dissecta as my plant does not display a hanging leaf formation for this plant, thanks anyway though. 

    It does match exactly the suggestion made by Asarum though, please see the attached pic.
    Need to find out what care it needs now ?.

    Thanks to both of you.
