I can't speak with authority as a James Hardie rep could, but I would say no.

The reason plank siding is the shape and configuration it is has to do with its ability to shed water. This goes back centuries to wood siding. Our ancestors were smart enough to understand that or develop that system within their saw mill limitations.

Fiber cement siding is simply mimicking the original wood lap siding. Plank siding cannot be installed vertically.
