Ficus virens (White Fig)

moraceae

If you can tolerate some winter dieback in the Houston area (or similar parts of zone 9) this Ficus originally introduced by Yucca Do Nursery quickly regrows in spring with reddish new growth and large tropical leaves. In zone 8b it may die to the trunk or to the ground, but still recovers but may remain shrubbier. This is a wavy leaf clone that Adam Black propagated from a tree at Orlando FL’s Leu Gardens.
