Spectacular Monthly Tree - Ficus rubignosa & ntida

Although we have many tree species at our nursery that are looking spectacular at any given time, we feature just one tree in particular every month that we know will offer you the best value for money and that will add that special touch to your landscape project.

This month we feature both the popular Ficus rubiginosa as well as the graceful Ficus ntida as these magnificent shade trees are looking absolutely stunning at the moment.

The leaves of Ficus rubiginosa are a rusty colour on the underside, giving rise to the popular name Rusty fig. This beautiful ficus which originates in Australia, reaches a height of about 10m and has a dense, spreading crown making it a sought after shade tree for medium to large gardens, parks and various public areas. As the tree ages, the trunk becomes buttressed and can reach a diameter of 1 ½ m.

Ficus ntida is an equally impressive large shade tree with a dense rounded canopy and originates in India and Malaysia. This ficus has a fairly formal looking growth habit and lovely smallish, glossy, mid green leaves.

Both these ficus species are hardy and will withstand a wide variety of growing conditions from shade to full sun, as well as tolerating a diversity of soil types.

As with all the ficus’s, these trees are best planted away from buildings and paved areas to avoid any damage being caused by the strong root system.

When planted in large containers and kept trimmed, these trees make a real statement on a patio or to enhance a paved private or public area.
