Fern fiddleheads off Blue Ridge Parkway in Virginia

Fern fiddleheads, a few steps off the Blue Ridge Parkway, in Virginia. Fiddleheads open into full leaves, if all goes well. They are said to be edible, although we’ve never tried them. I don’t know what the other plants are. One kind of them was all over the place at this location. A commenter (see below) has identified the fern as cinnamon fern (Osmunda cinnamomea).
