Osmunda claytoniana - Interrupted Fern


This one is similar to the Cinnamon Fern but will tolerate drier soils. The fertile leaflets interrupt the fronds giving it its common name. Has a light green color, which shows up well in the shade. It will tolerate quite a bit of sun in cooler climates. Here at the nursery ours get sun about 3/4's of the day and they do great. After a few years they will form into a very large clump, they do spread by runners so they can be planted around other plants without worrying about them taking over but let them have a large space for the fronds to spread out. 

Shade to Semi-Sun, Dry Soil, 3-4 ft Tall, Zones 4-10
