Ficus vaccinioides



Add to wishlist Remove from wishlist
Sweet little evergreen groundcover from southern Taiwan where it grows at low to mid elevation in littoral thickets. Then there are the virtual thickets.... Small rounded leaves and yes, there are very small figs but it would take a lot to make figgy pudding. Zone 8 hardy and grows at the Zone 7 Raulston Arboretum in a sheltered spot where it is deciduous in cold winters. Tolerant of shade.
