Ficus heterophylla

Photo by Carl Dawson.

We are identifying this little-known fig as Ficus heterophylla thanks to Tony Avent at Plant Delights who was probably the source for the cuttings we originally started with.  It is a rather scandent shrub with long almost vine-like branches.  The adult foliage is attractive with dark green pointed, slightly cordate deciduous leaves with nice red petioles.  Juvenile foliage may be lobed.  It would probably make an interesting espalier on a shady or semi-shady wall.  It is native to south China and much of southern Asia.  We will appreciate any customer reports on the performance and merit of this new introduction.
