Osmunda cinnamomea ‘Cinnamon Fern’

The ‘Cinnamon Fern’ is a strong growing, vigorous variety with very large, full branching double, upright fronds with cinnamon stick-like spikes. Use Cinnamon Ferns as a backdrop in larger gardens. They work well with hostas or in the bog garden with ligularia, rodgersia, and other large, bold perennials. Cinnamon ferns do not have flowers or blooms.

Ferns are perfect for the background of the garden or in a woodland setting. Their gracefulness make them especially suited for companions to the Hosta. Performs well in sun but prefers partial shade.

General Information +

Botanical: Osmunda cinnamomea

Common: Cinnamon fern

Family: Osmundaceae

General Characteristics: Cinnamon ferns appear similar to ostrich ferns but with some distinct differences. The crosiers (young, emerging fiddlehead) are white and woolly, and it has a much larger, fertile "cinnamon stick". It also spreads slowly, unlike the rampant ostrich fern. This plant tolerates flooding and will grow in wet submerged soils. Typically grows in clumps to 2-3' tall, but with constant moisture can reach 5' in height.

Planting/Care Instructions +

Pests or Diseases: No serious insect or disease problems.

Planting Instructions: Planting instructions: May be planted in any well-drained soil. Dig a hole large enough to encompass the roots without bending or circling. Set the plant in place so the crown (part of the plant where the root meets the stem) is level with the soil surface. Water thoroughly. Cinnamon ferns grow best in constantly damp, acid soil. They can be grown in any lighting conditions, as long as their moisture requirements are met. Plants spread slowly making beautiful stands of graceful fronds. Transplant crowns in the spring and early summer, planting them right at the level of the soil.
