Osmundastrum cinnamomea

Cinnamon fern

Osmundastrum cinnamomea is a fern native throughout the southeast, naturally occurring in wetland habitats. It grows in moist to wet soils, and in deep shade to full sun (only if soils are kept wet). It can reach up to six feet tall during the growing season, but dies back completely in the winter. It has cinnamon-colored fertile fronds that unfurl in the summer and remain through fall. Osmundastrum cinnamomea is an excellent choice for a specimen plant in a wet yard.
