Creeping Fig


This evergreen is a handsome choice for climbing walls, poles, arbors and fences; the vigorous-growing, clinging, dense branches of creeping fig will adhere to any surface. Neat little juvenile foliage of tiny, heart-shaped leaves develops into big, leathery leaves. Bears green, white-spotted, pear-shaped, densely hairy figs ripening to purple.
