Banjo fig
Fiddleleaf fig
This spreading, evergreen tree from tropical Africa can reach a height of 100 ft (30 m). It features broad, violin-shaped leaves: they are bright glossy green, heavily veined, and up to 15 in (38 cm) long. Insignificant cream flowers are followed by 1 in (25 mm) green fruit. Ficus lyrata is often seen as a house plant.
Cultivation: Figs grow to great heights in gardens and most species have vigorous, invasive root systems. Figs prefer full sun to part-shade and humus-rich, moist but well-drained soil.
Water potted specimens sparingly.
Propagate from seed or cuttings, or by aerial layering.
