Cinnamon Fern (Osmunda cinnamonea)
Showy perennial features handsome, deep green, waxy fronds that add color and texture to the garden and cut-flower arrangements. Separate, spore-bearing, stiff fronds in the plant's center add to its appeal. Cinnamon Fern (Osmunda cinnamonea) grows 24-36" tall, but can grow taller with constant moisture. An easy-care, native perennial, Cinnamon Fern thrives in either wet, swampy areas or dry, shady spots. It's ideal for shade gardens, woodlands and native plant gardens. Rarely bothered by insect pests or disease, it's one of the easiest shade perennials to grow. Deer tend to avoid.
