Cinnamon Fern, Native to the United States and eastern Asia

Cinnamon Fern is a low-maintenance plant commonly seen in moist, swampy areas due to its partiality to moist soils. The first encounter with this herbaceous plant goes back over 75 million years ago. It was first utilized by ancient tribes such as the Abnakis and Menominees as a food source.

Cherokee tribes used the fronds for their notable medicinal uses, such as treating colds and snakebites. Fiddleheads also sprout up from the base of the plant, which is young, curved parts of the fern that are edible. After these fiddleheads sprout out of the base, they begin to turn yellowish-green in appearance and grow to be anywhere from two to four feet long.

Cinnamon Fern is a larger native fern species.

This fern got its name due to the fronds taking on a cinnamon color at their fertile stages. These fronds can spread to approximately 30–150 cm in length and 2–2.5 cm in width. These fertile pieces can be spotted not only by their brownish hue but also by their spores. These spores end up dropping off the fronds as colder months approach, but the fronds remain intact and in good health.

Cinnamon ferns are recommended to be planted in full to partial Shade and in moist soil areas rich in texture. Due to them primarily being found in boggy areas throughout the wild, they appreciate a damp environment. If planting within a vessel, it is advised that the planting container is 4.5 inches or more.
