DESCRIPTION

A vigorous grower with attractive small heart-shaped leaves. It climbs easily and is a useful plant to fill or cover unsightly spaces, such as walls or fences and will cover topiary frames quite quickly. It also makes a good groundcover.

Plant in a free draining organic mix and water regularly. It can be grown in full sun to partial shade. If growing in full sun, ensure it has an adequate supply of water until established. Once established, it will tolerate short periods of drought. The Creeping Fig can be grown indoors in indirect light and will trail easily over a hanging basket or pot placed high.

As the plant matures, it sends out side branches. These horizontal branches are thicker and have larger leaves. To keep your Creeping Fig looking tidy, prune or trim these branches regularly to encourage the young, smaller, leaf growth and to keep it under control.
