Cinnamon Fern or Osmunda cinnamomea appear similar to ostrich ferns but with some distinct differences. The crosiers of the Cinnamon Fern (young, emerging fiddlehead) are white and woolly, and it has a much larger, fertile "cinnamon stick". The Cinnamon Fern also spreads slowly, unlike the rampant ostrich fern.
