Flower Form: The deciduous ostrich fern grows in circular clumps and spreads by underground runners. The large green ostrich plume-shaped fronds reach 5' before dying back in the fall. The frond's leaflets are twice divided (bipinnate). In Spring, a few weeks after the first green fronds appear, brown spore-covered fronds emerge from the center.
 

Fiddlehead Ferns are known for the tasty fiddleheads consumed by humans

They are smaller than the first green fronds, and, in ideal conditions, can create new plants from these spores. Fiddleheads, or young croziers, are harvested for food. According to multiple resources, Ostrich fern is considered to be the safest for consumption. CAUTION: all fiddleheads should be cooked before eating and consumed in moderation until you are sure how you will react to it.
