  • Description

    Cinnamon fern (Osmunda cinnamomea) is a medium to large perennial fern that grows naturally in moist, boggy ground along streams and on shaded ledges and bluffs. It forms 2-3′ tall clumps which can reach 6′ with sufficient moisture. Familiar fiddleheads appear in spring, unfurling into 2-4′ long fronds which eventually turn an attractive golden yellow in autumn. Additionally, upright fertile fronds appear in early spring, quickly turning brown and offering a vibrant contrast to the yellowish-green sterile fronds. The common name Cinnamon Fern is derived from the cinnamon-colored fibers found near the frond bases. These fibers are commonly used as nesting material for birds.
