Cinnamon ferns grow best in constantly damp, acid soil. They can be grown in any lighting conditions, as long as the soil is kept very moist. Plants spread slowly making beautiful stands of graceful fronds. Transplant crowns in the spring and early summer, planting them right at the level of the soil. Landscape uses: Use cinnamon ferns as a backdrop in larger gardens. They work well with hostas or in the bog garden with ligularia, rodgersia, and other large, bold perennials.

Important: When your ferns arrive they need to be kept cool, damp and out of direct sunlight. Keep the roots moist by keeping them wrapped in the damp sphagnum. Plant as soon as possible and water well. Planting instructions included.
