Additional Information About Creeping Fig

Creeping Fig is a fast and very fast growing vining plant, groundcover plant and perennial plant that can be grown in USDA Plant Hardiness Zones 8A through 10B. It prefers growing in a location that provides full sun, shade, morning sun with afternoon shade, morning shade with afternoon sun or filtered sun and grows best when planted in sand, loam, clay or silt soil that is well drained. It attracts visual attention and is resistant to deer, insects, diseases and heat.

More About Creeping Fig...

Creeping fig is an enthusiastic climber able to scramble up brick, stone or stucco walls up to 3 to 4 stories tall. This vine coats surfaces with a tracery of fine stems that are densely covered with small heart shaped leaves that are 1 inch long by about .75 in wide. They are held closely to the surface creating a mat of foliage that extends barely 1 in from the surface.

Creeping fig is not particular about soil. It's less aggressive and easier to manage when its grown in less fertile, drier soil. This vine will grow at seaside if protected behind dunes or buildings. It will tolerate full sun or shade however in the cooler regions where it will grow it should be planted on south or east walls to protect it from damage by winter winds.

It is quite drought tolerant when established however you'll need to provide it water during dry spells when young. Water when dry when young.

Creeping Fig can be useful as a groundcover where it looks great scrambling over boulders but is most often used to climb and fully cover block, masonry, and concrete walls. Disney and the other theme parks make use of creeping fig to create "instant" topiary. Wire frameworks are created of geometric shapes, animals, and even famous cartoon characters. The frames are lined with spaghum moss and filled with growing medium. Creeping fig is planted in the frame which rapidly grows to cover the shape in a thin coat of fine-textured juvenile leaves.
