Indian Laurel Fig Hedges and Trees
- Best in Full Sun, Tolerates Some Shade – Evergreen
- Regular water in Summer
Native to India and Malaysia, Ficus nitida is widely used as a street tree and as a formal hedge in Southern California. Grows at a moderate rate up to 40 ft. May be pruned at almost any time of year to size or shape desired. Can be a very dense hedge. Be wary of planting near sidewalks, streets, plumbing, or septic systems because of invasive roots, but root guards can help reduce problems, and they are less of a problem when hedge is kept smaller. Low temperatures can damage the tree. Thrips can be a nuisance, but are easy to control.
