Stunning color and texture! Native to eastern North America, this beauty creates a striking focal point especially for moist or boggy areas. Upright golden-copper slender fronds extend from the center like tall cinnamon sticks surrounded by vase-shaped lacy-green. Showy fiddleheads emerge in spring encased in downy silver and unfurl to display intricate filigreed crisp-green foliage.

Cinnamon Fern will typically grow to 2-3 tall; however, with constant moisture like its native habitat, it could extend to a statuesque height of 4-5. The Latin name for this Fern is Osmundastrum Cinnamomeum.

Fern General Information

Ferns are perfect for the shade garden. Lacy fronds soften the texture of other go-to shade classics like Hosta, Astilbe and Tiarella. Always welcome in a naturalized setting, Ferns like a woodland setting with loamy soil with lots of leaf mold. Most are fine with acidity making them perfect near evergreens.

Fern Plant Care

Prefers a moist, humus-rich soil. Allow foliage to remain over the winter to create a natural mulch. Clip off dead and damaged fronds in the spring. Rarely requires division, but if desired can be divided in spring or fall once large enough to have two or more crowns.
