Ficus pumila 'Minima'


Ficus pumila 'Minima'

CATALOGUE DESCRIPTION
Small creeping vine that has self-rooting stems that will cling to walls and trunks of trees in its juvenile stage. As a juvenile it has soft heart shaped dark green slender leaves. Grows slowly. As it matures the plant develops thick stocky branches in its adult stage, with longer leathery mid-green leaves. Very useful for densely covering walls, fences or buildings. Hardy, though prefers semi-shaded sites.
