Pyrrosia lingua 'Hagoromo Nishiki' is a rarely offered variegated Japanese selection of evergreen tongue fern. The 9" tall leaf is perched atop a 3" thin-but-sturdy stipe (the thingy that connects the leaf to the rhizome). Each fuzzy olive green, upright, cardboard-textured, wavy-edged leaf is heavily banded with chartreuse golden stripes. Pyrrosia lingua is an epiphytic fern (doesn't need soil), that spreads slowly via a thin ground surface rhizome. Pyrrosia 'Hagoromo Nishiki' grows well in the ground on a slope, or in colder climates, will make a fantastic hanging basket specimen.
