Cinnamon Fern is named for the vertical reddish-brown fruiting spikes which emerge from its center in early spring and persist long after the spores are shed. One of the most dramatic of our native ferns, it forms large vase shaped clumps that are an attractive addition to the moist woodland garden. Unlike some large ferns, Cinnamon Fern does not spread rapidly by rhizomes. It prefers moist, neutral to acid soil, where it can grow up to 5 feet high. Plants will adapt with a lower height in average soil conditions.
