We love this superb species of evergreen tongue fern from Taiwan, via a US National Arboretum expedition (USNA 45507-D). Unlike Pyrrosia lingua, Pyrrosia polydactyla doesn't run, but instead makes a stunning 1' tall x 1' wide textural clump of felty, five-fingered, dark green leaves. Pyrrosia polydactyla is a fern that deserves a very special specimen location in the woodland garden, although it really needs to be sited on a moderate to steep slope to perform its best. In a container, Pyrrosia polydactyla makes a superb and very easy-to-grow houseplant.
