Pyrrosia lingua 'Tachiba Koryu' is another of the many splendid Japanese selections of the Asian native tongue fern. The fronds emerge from a thin but stiff rhizome that runs just above the ground in most cases. The narrow, thick, leathery leaves are incredibly ruffled (like running your finger through a veggie shredder) and are held vertically above the rhizome. In well-drained sites, especially when growing on the side of a hill, the evergreen tongue fern can make a very nice colony, albeit far from invasive. In milder climates, they can also grow as epiphytes on rocks and trees as long as their base is in the soil.
