Osmundastrum cinnamomeum

Almost 2″ of rain has fallen here over the last 7 days and the Cinnamon Ferns are almost as tall as I am. I know you can buy these ferns potted, but I have no idea what sort of culture they would need to be transplanted. The one in the picture is growing on the shoulder of our gravel driveway and there are hundreds of them in the swamp beyond. I never thought I’d consider myself lucky to live next to a swamp, but it has proved to be a beautiful and complex habitat in all seasons.
