Pyrrosia lingua 'Limon' is a 2014 Plant Delights/JLBG introduction that started its life here as a sport on Pyrrosia 'Ogon Nishiki' that went to all gold. Pyrrosia lingua 'Limon' is composed of upright tongue-shaped, rigid foliage that grows from a thin, fairly brittle, creeping rhizome. The foliage of Pyrrosia 'Limon' is brightest in very open shade or some morning sun, but will turn completely green when planted in deep shade. The vigor in Pyrrosia 'Limon' is quite good and it should form a 2' wide patch in 3-5 years...if the soil is organically amended. As with all Pyrrosia lingua cultivars, the fastest growth occurs when they are planted on a slope or in a hanging basket.
