Description Fine Print
 
Osmunda cinnamomea is an unmistakable fern in which the spores are produced on separate stems (rather than on the backs of the fronds) that rise up into a vase of light green foliage. These turn the colour of cinnamon. Great for a shaded garden and moist to average soils. Deciduous. The fiddleheads are sometimes steamed and eaten in spring, though ostrich fern, Matteucia struthiopteris, is the more common culinary fern.
