Pyrrosia lingua 'Kei Kan' is a Japanese selection of evergreen tongue fern with foliage similar to Pyrrosia lingua 'Hiryu', except the frond is much wider, sometimes reaching 4" wide. Each thick evergreen frond is deeply lobed with the terminal tip resembling a wet duck feather. The fronds emerge vertically from the wiry rhizome that runs just above the soil. Sloped planting sites result in best growth.
