Hardy Native Ferns

Osmunda cinnamomea

Cinnamon fern

Osmunda cinnamomea, Cinnamon Fern, is truly an elegant addition to any natural or man made water garden. Its stately textured fronds stand 2-5’ tall depending on maturity and site conditions. Osmunda cinnamomea sends its fertile frond up from the center in a cinnamon colored wand that contrasts well with the light green, bold foliage. Cinnamon Fern likes its feet wet but its ankles dry forming its own root crown of Osmunda fiber.  It thrives in filtered sun to part shade and is hardy in zones 3-10.
