IMPORTANT INFORMATION:
CHECK Dormancy Table to SEE WHAT'S GROWING & WHAT'S DORMANT

We remove some of the soil when we ship. There are usually no issues with a plants
out of soil or kept dry for a week or more. When you receive your plants, put them
into a pot with moist soil. Give
the roots opportunity to reachdown for water.
Please check to see if your plants should be watered at
the time of year you purchase. Some don't get a lot of water in winter and some not a lot of water in summer.
How often you water depends on how quickly your soil dries out. Most important, don't overwater.

The photos on our website represent what plants look like when growing.
We are not selling the plant in the photo.
Whether your plant has flowers depends on whether it is flowering at that time.
A pot may be one large plant or more than one plant. Plants grow at a different pace and different sizes
so if you order 2 plants coming out of the same size pot, they may not be the same size.

Sale plants may require additional freight payment

Ficus macrophylla

Ficus macrophylla, commonly known as the Moreton Bay fig, is a large evergreen banyan tree of the family that is a native of most of the eastern coast of Australia from the Atherton Tableland (17° S) in the north to the Illawarra(34° S) in New South Wales, and Lord Howe Island. Its common name is derived from Moreton Bay in Queensland , Australia . It is best known for its beautiful buttress roots. As Ficus macrophylla is a strangler fig , seed germination usually takes place in the canopy of a host tree and the seedling lives as an epiphyte until its roots establish contact with the ground. It then enlarges and strangles its host, eventually becoming a freestanding tree by itself. Individuals may reach 200 ft in height. Like all figs, it has an obligate mutualism with fig wasps figs are only pollinated by fig wasps, and fig wasps can only reproduce in fig flowers. Ficus macrophylla is widely used as a feature tree in public parks and gardens in warmer climates such as California, Portugal, Italy (Sicily, Sardinia and Liguria), northern New Zealand (Auckland), and Australia. Old specimens can reach tremendous size. Its aggressive root system allows its use in only the largest private gardens.
