Osmunda cinnamomea

Cinnamon Fern

Of a coarser texture than most ferns, these 6-foot-tall plants are the source for Osmunda fiber used in growing orchids. The young fronds are cooked and eaten in some parts of the world. Likes shade and moist soil, so plant around ponds and streams. Plan ahead before you place these large plants. Leaves die back in winter, so buy during the growing season so you can see what you are getting.
