Cinnamon Fern is a Missouri native fern that occurs naturally in moist, boggy ground along streams and shady bluffs and ledges. It features separate spore-bearing, stiff fronds in early spring, which quickly turn brown, which is where it got its ‘cinnamon’ name. The familiar fiddleheads emerge from the base of the plant and unfurl into large, erect, yellow-greenish sterile fronds 2-4 feet long which remain attractive throughout the summer and turn yellow in autumn.
Tip: Potted dormant perennials can be kept in a well-lit cool/cold area (i.e. garage, shed, even in a protected area outdoors) until ready for spring planting. Do not allow them to completely dry out.
