Cinnamon Fern Characteristics
Cinnamon Fern are clump-forming ferns with a somewhat vase shaped habitat. The foliage is medium green in the spring, but quickly turns brown by fall. Large spikes emerge from the center of the plant. The spikes, called "fiddleheads", turn an attractive yellow in fall. The name refers to the color of the spikes and the frond bases.
There are few serious insect or disease issues that threaten Cinnamon Fern. Rabbits tend to avoid these plants.
