Hi Jacque! this lovely Osmunda cinnamomea are a wild vegetable over here. they are not evergreen. the new growth comes from crowns and the crosiers (unfurling fronds) are so called because they look like a bishops crozier...the emerging curls are harvested while they are firmly closed called 'fiddleheads" they are a delicacy with a taste much like asparagus.
