Creeping Fig

Small heart-shaped leaves line the stems and aerial roots allow it to cling to almost any surface. Young foliage emerges bright and papery, but becomes glossy and leathery with age. Where climate allows, use for walls or ground cover. In colder regions use as houseplant or in seasonal combination pots. Prune as needed.
