    Ordered 10 and in a week four plants are popping through the soil. Have always had a good experience with this nursery. Can’t wait for the rest to grow! Gave four stars because I am waiting on the rest. It’s all good.

Description

Cinnamon Fern - Osmundastrum cinnamomeum For Sale Affordable, Grower Direct Prices Tennessee Wholesale Nursery

Cinnamon Fern is a low-maintenance plant commonly seen in moist, swampy areas due to its partiality to wet soils. 

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.

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.

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. They appreciate a damp environment. If planting in a pot, it is advised that the planting container is 4.5 inches or more.

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.

Cinnamon Fern 

Readily found in many regions in Canada, the United States, Mexico, and Central America. The Cinnamon Fern thrive in bogs and wetlands, although it may also be found growing on shady ledges or bluffs. Preferring acidic muddy, loamy, or calcareous soils and partial to medium shade, these ferns may tolerate full sun in areas where standing water is present. 

 

 Visually striking, the fronds of the two-toned Cinnamon Fern emerge in dense clumps from shallow, black rhizomes. The larger, sterile leaves grow at the perimeter of the plant, ringing the smaller, fertile leaves and bending slightly outward to form a protective, vase-shaped enclosure. The Cinnamon Fern’s sterile leaves are generally light to medium green in color, may grow up to 5 ½ feet in length, and are comprised of rounded leaflets arranged asymmetrically along the frond’s midrib. The fertile leaves are the substantially smaller, more erect instance, and covered in thick, cinnamon-colored hairs. Initially emerging as silvery fiddleheads, the fertile leaves become rigid spikes as they mature and the sori, or spore-bearing pods, form in dense clusters on these leaves. Blooming from May to June, the Cinnamon Fern’s fertile fronds emerge first and will persist through the winter months. Even after the more delicate sterile fronds have succumbed to frost. Stunning contrast in both color and texture, the Cinnamon Fern is often utilized in landscaping to add interest or variety.
