Ficus pumila ‘Quercifolia’ is a more miniature variety of the very popular Ficus pumila ‘Creeping Fig’. Unlike the Creeping Fig, this petite climbing vine tends to be a little more slow growing, which is often appreciated due to the fact that Creeping Fig can sometimes spread too fast for some people’s liking. It’s also well liked for its petite, oakleaf shaped foliage. As most tropical vines, it appreciates a moist substrate and will grow faster in a humid environment. It must be kept damp, or it will tend to dry out. Quercifolia prefers light shade.
USDA Hardiness Zones 7-11
This plant is considered choice for container gardening due to its very small sized leaves and tight, low ground cover growth. It’s therefore very popular in container gardening and also a great candidate for fairy gardens.
