Description

Ficus pumila 'Variegata' is the variegated cultivar of Creeping Fig (or Climbing Fig) and is generally grown as a houseplant in the UK. A handsome plant with bold white variegation it forms a low creeping mat and is ideal if planted in a wide-brimmed container and can also be trained to grow vertically. If Ficus pumila is usually a little too tender for most outdoor locations in the UK, then Ficus pumila 'Variegata' is even more so and will not tolerate sub-zero temperatures at all. It needs to be kept indoors throughout the winter although it will do well in the garden once the frosts have passed providing it is kept moist and in dappled shade. It can burn in the mid-summer full sun. Bring indoors again at the beginning of October.
