none I know of but here is an article which seems reasonable. In my experience growing them for f17 years, the first year you will get leaves c. 5' tall. They then naturalize so good for multiplying plants and general for a naturalistic style of garden

Off the top of my head, the only one I can think of that will reliably do so is Sparaxis tricolor although other species like S. elegans may do so as well (no personal experience though).
