A focal point for a special spot, Cinnamon Fern, with its strong arching green fronds, adds a dramatic element to a shady spot. Growing from 2-5 feet tall it loves attention but is an easy-care plant when kept consistently moist. Plant a group of 3 or 5 for a beautiful show. (Osmunda cinnamonea)

Plant Information

24-36' tall x 24-36 wide. Cinnamon Fern’s tall narrow spikes of cinnamon-colored spore-producing material reach up like giant cinnamon sticks from the center of the plant in spring - it’s easy to see where it gets its common name. Contrasting with the blue-green 4-foot fronds, this is an elegant and unusual fern. Plant it in partial to full shade, in humus-rich soil, where there is plenty of moisture. Excellent along a streamside or water garden. Lovely planted with Hosta, Coral Bells, Bleeding Heart, and other shade loving plants. Cut back old fronds after new growth begins in spring. Native to North America and deer resistant too.

Q & A

Plant With These:

USDA Hardiness Planting Zones

To determine if a plant is sufficiently cold hardy, the USDA created numbered zones indicating winter low temperatures; the lower the zone number the colder the winter.

  • If the coldest winter temperature expected in your area is -15°F (zone 5) then any plants rated zones 3-5 will survive the winter temperatures in your area.
  • If you live in very warm winter areas (zones 9-11) plants with zones 3-4 ratings are not recommended. The lack of freezing winter temperatures do not provide a time for winter dormancy (rest).
