Japanese nurserymen are known for finding (and creating) odd mutant plants and there is no better example than Coniogramme intermedia 'Yoroi Musha'. The 3' tall x 2' wide fronds emerge from a slowly creeping rhizome (4' wide in 5 years in NC). Each glossy, dark green frond has pinnae that randomly mutate and form odd protrusions, ensuring that no two fronds are exactly alike. We find that these easy-to-grow coniogrammes are equally at home in dry or moist soils.
