Quality all around, Packaged fresh and lasted till I could plant them well.
The fronds once broken or crushed have a pleasant aroma to them
My bag was broken and the box was banged up but it looked like it survived pretty good
Whole entire company gets an A in my book. The plants were shipped fast, packaged good and secure and customer service is great.
After removing it from the box, I proceeded to ignore it on my sunny, scorching doorstep for a day. It didn't care. I brought it inside and left it on the floor in the dark entryway for a while. It was fine there. I moved it to an upstairs room by an east-facing window late in the afternoon. It's cool with that, too.

Cinnamon Fern - Osmundastrum cinnamomeum
Latin Name: Osmunda cinnamomea
Hardy Planting Zone: 2-10
Mature Height: 24-60 inches
Bloom Season: Non-flowering
Sun or Shade Preferred: Partial or Full Shade
Native to the United States and eastern Asia, the Cinnamon Fern is a low-maintenance plant commonly seen in moist, swampy areas due to its partiality to wet soils. The first encounter with this herbaceous plant goes back to over 75 million years ago. It was first utilized by ancient tribes such as the Abnakis and Menominees as a food source. Cherokee tribes used the fronds for their important medicinal uses such as treating colds and snakebites. Fiddleheads also emerge from the base of the plant, which is young, curved parts of the fern that are edible. After these fiddleheads sprout out of the station, they begin to turn yellowish green in appearance and grow to be anywhere from two to four feet long.
This fern got its name due to the fronds taking on a cinnamon color when they are at their fertile stages. These fronds can spread out to approximately 30–150 cm in length, and 2–2.5 cm in width. These fertile pieces can be spotted not only by their brownish hue but also by the spores coming out of them. These spores end up dropping off of the fronds as colder months approach, but the fronds remain intact and in good health.
It is recommended that cinnamon ferns be planted in full to partial Shade, and in areas where the soil is known to be moist and rich in texture. Due to them primarily being found in boggy areas throughout the wild, they appreciate a damp environment. If planting within a vessel, it is advised that the planting container is 4.5 inches or more.
Cinnamon Ferns are native to many of the world's bogs and swamps, with a natural rage occurring primarily in the Americas and Eastern Asia.
