Celebrated as one of our choicest natives, the deciduous Cinnamon Fern is steeped in grandeur and calls every state east of the Mississippi its home. Urbane vase-shaped clumps spotlight gracefully arching lacy bright green fronds plus an extraordinary central showing of erect fertile cinnamon-hued spikes. Known to be a tasty meal for ruffled grouse and nest material for hum- mingbirds, Osmunda cinnamomea favors moist shady sites, handles more sun in cooler locales and looks best en masse.
Size: 3' high x 3' wide; hardy to zone 3.
Osmunda cinnamomea (F-0024)

Dainty blooms and unfurling leaves forge an early spring treasure trove of color and texture.
In the last ten days, we’ve experienced all kinds of weather at Digging Dog, including frosty mornings, torrential downpours, deafening hail, glorious sunny 70 º afternoons and even sleet! Thankfully spring is almost here and signs of its arrival grow more evident every day. Brimming with possibility, youthful growth and pristine delicacy, the early spring garden is a fresh treasure trove of color and texture. The plants featured in this newsletter caught my eye while walking through the nursery and along the surrounding borders. Hopefully, a handful of them will spark your interest as well! All of us here at the nursery wish you a very happy spring and countless happy afternoons digging in a garden! Digging Dog's mid March 2017 Newsletter Link
