  • Separate spore-bearing, stiff, fertile fronds appear in early spring, quickly turning brown.
  • The familiar "fiddleheads" also emerge from the base of the plant and unfurl into large, erect, pinnately-compound, yellowish-green, sterile fronds (2-4' long) which remain attractive throughout the summer and turn yellow in autumn.
  • The common name of this plant is in reference to the cinnamon colored fibers found near the frond bases.
  • Osmunda fiber used in the potting of orchids comes from the roots of these ferns.
