A muddy, neglected part of the landscape can be viewed as a problem… or an opportunity! Instead of hiding that gloomy space, why not transform it with a Spirit that thrives in those conditions? Cinnamon Fern fills dank, dark spaces with graceful fountains of lush, emerald-green foliage. Luxuriating in soggy soil and needing little sun to survive, it turns problem areas into delightful oases of green. Use it to create a soothing scene outside your home office window, and make your hours spent hard at work seem more pleasant. So lovely.
Ferns give a Jurassic Park feel to the landscape. These ancient Spirits, which existed with and even long before the dinosaurs, speak to us on a primitive level. They bring to mind an era we can only imagine, with lush ferny plants covering the ground as well as taking the form of tall trees. Cinnamon Fern is a special Fern that has the distinction of being the only surviving member of its genus, making it a sort of “living fossil.” Although it’s all alone, it’s found in many places in the wild. It can be found in the eastern United States as well as in South America, Siberia, China, Japan, Korea, Thailand, and Vietnam.
Cinnamon Fern gets its name from its unusual manner of reproduction. In late spring, rusty brown fronds emerge from the center of the plant, looking like cinnamon sticks. These fuzzy fronds are covered with tiny spores—the Fern equivalent of seeds.
How to Grow
Although Cinnamon Fern is one tough Spirit, treating it well will reap rewards. This means giving it a premium spot in the landscape where it will receive gentle morning sun or dappled sunlight throughout the day. It needs shade when the sun is hottest. This Fern also appreciates rich, organic soil that holds some moisture but drains well and doesn’t stay soggy after a rain. Regular irrigation is important for lush growth, especially if plants are competing with tree roots for water. Cinnamon Fern goes dormant in winter, coming to life again in mid-spring.
