  • Regular price $18.00


Indian Laurel Fig is a great choice for a larger screening hedge plant. It grows quickly so you can screen off unsightly walls, fences, or neighboring views. There are also other practical uses for this plant. Since it has tight dense foliage, it can be used for topiaries. It can be potted for a small patio tree, espaliered to a wall, or even used as shade tree. Plant in full sun and provide deep watering in the Summer months. Be careful, because this tree can reach up to 60 feet tall and has invasive roots. Make sure not to plant this near any hardscape surfaces, walls, foundations, or piping. Native to Borneo Islands.
