Cinnamon Fern – Osmunda cinnamomea
Ferns are generally associated with densely forested areas surrounded by shade. Not all of these plants require constant shade. Growing naturally among the mountain slopes of Missouri, the cinnamon fern can handle places with direct sunlight. The name alludes to the light brown fronds. The cinnamon fern has two separate types of fronds. The fertile sections lack the typical pigment of a fern found in the forest. As the name suggests, these productive parts take on a light brown appearance. The surrounding fronds are larger and come in a variety of greens. The contrast of both of these fronds makes for a bold statement in any garden. Once used for medicinal remedies by Native American tribes, these plants now make for an attractive garden addition, particularly those who can keep the level of moisture relatively high. The cinnamon fern tends to grow in clumps that generally reach a height of about 2 to 3 inches. Some have been known to grow up to 5 inches tall. The U.S. Department of Agriculture has labeled this fern’s hardiness zone as 4 through 9, making them highly adaptable. They are one of the most resilient fern species. When planting, it is best to place them in soil that is moist and slightly acidic. If you are apprehensive about overwatering, plant your cinnamon fern in an area with boggy or soggy land. Do keep in mind that they can thrive in sunny locations when properly hydrated. These ferns are considered to be moderate growers when placed in the right conditions, yet take a good amount of time to spread. Organic matter can also aid in the overall well being of this fern. Gardeners have been known to use the cinnamon fern to accentuate swampy areas where a touch of showy fronds makes the other plants pop. If you so wish to add a heat-tolerant fern to your sunny garden, you can expect a cinnamon fern to be shipped in the form of a bareroot rhizome.
