Plant Features

Athyrium 'Osmuda' Cinnamon Fern Plant can reach a height of 6-feet, but more commonly grows 3 to 4 feet high. Pale green large leafy fronds encircle smaller fronds that are cinnamon-colored. Hummingbirds have even been seen to use the fuzz on the young fronds to line their nests with and in the fall the Cinnamon Fern turns a mellow golden color. This variety is slightly more sun tolerant than others, as long as the water supply is good.
