Fiddle Leaf Fig (Ficus Lyrata), Tree form
Forget the picky ficus of years gone by- those little leaves that dropped off if you looked at it the wrong way. Ficus lyrata is an amazing plant. It has large, lush leaves, tolerates many light levels, it really isn't very fussy about anything except maybe having too wet feet. You will enjoy its lushness all winter when you bring it in from the patio. This is the tree form, which opens up the greenscaping possibilities.
