Thrives in moist soil, from full sun to partial shade
Botanical Name: Osmunda cinnamomea
Hardiness Zone: 3-8
Cinnamon Fern thrives in wet areas. Big aggressive fronds emerge from the soil in spring and unfurl nearly upright to yellowish-green fronds that can stretch even to 4 or 5' tall depending on the area. Unique cinnamon brown fibers are found at the base of this plant and its fronds giving this plant a slightly different look and provide the basis for its name. Cinnamon Fern will tolerate sun or shade but needs ample soil moisture to make a go of it in the sun.
