Common Name: Ficus Starlight, Weeping Fig, Ficus Tree, Benjamin Ficus
Availabilty: Out of Stock ENQUIRE NOW
The Weeping Fig is a beautiful evergreen tree with gorgeous variegated foliage. Oval leaves are bordered with cream and bright green centres, whilst this broad and spreading shade tree has an attractive weeping habit with arching branches gently weeping as they grow. Insignificant flowers and small fig type fruits appear in the warmer months, but rarely indoors.
Growing 5 - 15 metres depending on environment (but can be kept much smaller in a pot) this is a popular garden tree, or hugely popular choice for indoor gardening. When kept indoors, he prefers bright diffused light, or part shade to full shade outdoors, although the Weeping Fig is more adaptable to direct sunlight than other Ficus. Fast growing compared to other trees, but slower growing than other Ficus varieties. As an indoor, don't be shy of pruning the leaves to maintain the desired shape... this variety can even be a bonsai!
If planting this stunner outdoors, be aware of the highly invasive root system. Whilst the above-ground roots are beautiful, do not plant near buildings.
Moderately tolerant of wind, hardy to drought, frost tender. Well drained soils, can handle some water-logging. Full sun to full shade, or bright diffused light indoors.
