Pyrrosia lingua 'Alabama Gold', was shared by Alabama plantsman, Hayes Jackson, who found it for sale at a local garden center. Pyrrosia 'Alabama Gold' creeps via pencil-lead sized rhizomes that lay on the ground or any solid surface. Emerging from the rhizome are 10" long, thumb-shaped leaves with a leathery texture. The green leaves are flushed gold when grown where it receives open shade or morning sun. Pyrrosia 'Alabama Gold' should form a 2' wide patch in 3-5 years, but will also make a stunning container specimen.
