    Cinnamon Fern - Osmundastrum cinnamomeum


    Cinnamon Fern or Osmundastrum cinnamomeum is a perennial that is native to the United States and Eastern Asia. They have been found from Texas and Florida to Newfoundland. Cinnamon Fern is commonly found growing in swamps, wet woodlands, and bogs. The stem of this plant is brown with a woody texture. The leaves grow at a quick rate, starting out a light green and ending up a beautiful deep green color. The plant has the gorgeous cinnamon color plums that grow out of the center of the plant, and this is where the plant gets its name. They begin as stiff, thin leaves and open to becoming large, gorgeous leaves. They do best in acidic soils but can adapt very well to less acidity. It is a native of Missouri and favored because of its low maintenance needs. As long as the Cinnamon Fern has shade and wet soil, it will do very well. The Cinnamon Fern’s leaves remain a beautiful green all summer long, turning yellow in the fall. This gorgeous fern is adored by gardeners and landscapers alike for lining ponds and water gardens. They add height and can be used to draw the eye along the edges of a pond or water garden. They have the bonus being able to survive rabbits and deer as well. These gorgeous ferns are shipped to the customer in their bare root form, so they arrive in top notch condition.



    Acidic and moist, the humus-enriched soil is a favorite planting medium for the cinnamon fern. Apply a thin layer of pine needles or shredded leaves around the base as a moisture-holding mulch. Organic mulch entices free-working earthworms to move in where they cultivate and fertilize the soil with castings.


    Extra attention to proper planting details, along with hydration, in the beginning, gives this fern the potential to abound into colonies. Early spring or fall is the time to divide the multiplied clumps and construct a new fern paradise.


    Woodland gardens encourage visitations from the wild creatures as deer and rabbits browse uninhibited by the sheltering fern vegetation. However, since ferns are not on the menu, their foliage remains lush and healthy. Grab the camera and add the art of wildlife photography to your gardening ventures.
