Comments:
Cinnamon ferns (Osmunda cinnamomea) occur naturally in moist, boggy areas near streams and on shaded ledges. Cinnamon ferns generally grow in clumps two to three feet tall, but have been known to reach heights of five feet if given constant moisture. The cinnamon fern receives its name from the small, younger fronds, which start out bright green before turning cinnamon in color. These smaller fronds give striking contrast to the larger, deep green fronds.
