Osmunda claytoniana
Osmunda claytoniana
Common Name: Interrupted fern

Broad green fronds are “interrupted” in the middle by spore-bearing pinnae (leaflets) in early summer, hence the common name. Forming a lovely spreading vase habit, this low-maintenance native fern makes a distinctive addition to the shade border or woodland garden.

Height: 2-4 ft
USDA Hardiness Zone: 2-8
