Cinnamon Fern has cinnamon brown fonds

Cinnamon Ferns sport deep green fronds that are contrasted with fertile reproductive central fronds that appear in early spring or fall. Containing the spore packets for the plant, these reproductive fronds are cinnamon brown giving the Cinnamon Fern its namesake. The leaves of the Cinnamon Fern are oblong and oval and are twice divided, meaning the individual blades are subdivided into pinnules. In the springtime, new growth of the Cinnamon Fern emerges from the ground in a “coil” shape; a growth pattern called circinate vernation but commonly referred to as a fiddlehead due to its appearance.

Cinnamon Fern is a common fern in North America

The Cinnamon Fern is a relatively common type of fern that can be found growing along the eastern border of North America. Its scientific name is Osmunda Cinnamomea, and it can be located within the cold northeastern extremities of Canada, to the Southeastern everglades of the United States, meaning that it is successful in almost all plant zones. However, it is most successful and can be found in dense clumps, within moist, wooded areas. This includes marshes and other water deposits, as well as the beds of streams or river. This means that it is most successful in zones 5 to 9. There are two types of fronds: ones that grow big and wide and smaller ones, that begin as bright green, but eventually wilt away and turn into a distinctive cinnamon color. In some instances, the larger ones can grow up to six feet long and a foot wide, and the smaller ones have been reported to be only a few centimeters.
