Yes -- but rarely -- and any such seedling I find gets high marks for 

There appear to be both genetic & cultural components.  

Genetic:  open growth habits, self-sustaining-but-not-excessive increase, 
clean separation of mature rhizomes, and rot-resistance.

Cultural:  excellent drainage & sufficient potash.
