Osmunda cinnamomea

Cinnamon fern

Osmunda cinnamomea - Cinnamon Fern- Deciduous.  Native to eastern North America.  Light green, erect fronds are lacy-like and pinnately compound.  Fertile fronds emerge in the center of clumps and turn a cinnamon brown giving this fern its name.  Cinnamon fern will reach 5' over time if constantly moist.  In average conditions it will grow 2'-3' tall.   Cinnamon Fern spreads slowly by rhizomes and grows in vase shaped clumps.  Thrives in rich, moist soil.  Bright fern for the shade garden, woodland areas, stream and pond banks.  Sun exposure in cooler climates requires consistent moisture.  Mature height 24"-36" up to 5', spread 24"-36"
