Description

Ficus pumila, Creeping Fig, is a relatively common plant in many warm temperate countries such as Australia, New Zealand and around the Mediterranean and the southern states of the USA but is not often seen in the UK as it is just on the other side of hardy for most British regions. In some very favoured urban micro-climates and coastal locations it can be encouraged to grow along warm, sheltered south-facing walls but for most UK locations it will need to be grown in a container and brought inside for the winter. It is often grown as a houseplant in the UK. If you are lucky enough to have a suitable micro-climate it will clamber and crawl and climb over a vertical surface creating a highly attractive green wall.
