Ficus roxburghii, also known as Ficus auriculata, is a great spreading woody shrub in frost-free climates and a big bold perennial in zone 8. It is native to India. The very large 15" rounded glossy leaves create a dramatic tropical effect. It has proven root hardy for years for Joe LeVert in nearby Augusta, GA and this is the source of our cuttings. This dramatic foliage plant should be a must for tropical effect in protected Deep South gardens with good soil and adequate moisture.
USDA Hardiness Zone 8-10
