Classic Wetland Native Perennial 

Cinnamon Fern (Osmunda cinnamomea) is the perfect plant for that wet spot in your yard where very little will grow. Native to American wetlands, this plant thrives in woodland gardens and by streams, ponds and bogs. If you have a water feature in your yard, then this is the plant you want growing beside it. 

This elegant fern is usually 2’-3’ tall but can grow to 5’ tall with constant moisture. They can even thrive in standing water for extended periods of time. They perform well in sun or shade. They work great in containers, borders, shade gardens and excel as specimen plants. 

The name Cinnamon Fern refers to the cinnamon colored new fronds and the fibers that are found near the base. (You’ve seen these pretty fibers used to make orchid pots.) These ferns don’t flower or bloom, but they don’t need to. They make a huge statement with just their emerald green fronds standing like sentinels in your garden. These plants look prehistoric and are as sturdy as they look. 

Use these slowly spreading plants to fill in those wet spots and then don’t give them another thought. They are that hardy. Order your Cinnamon Fern from Nature Hills today.
