Ficus benjamina 'Mini Lucie'

A miniature fig tree for shady gardens outside and indoor gardens that get good, bright light.  Thick, glossy green leaves are smaller and more narrow than its full size cousin, with a distinctive curl or wave and a dramatic long tip at the end.  Plants usually have a main stem/trunk and several side branches.  Lower side branches can be removed to create a traditional "tree canopy".  New leaves are lighter green, changing to deeper green as they mature.  Adds character and a sense of age to miniature gardens in pots and in the garden.  Grows to about 12+" tall and 6+" wide, can be trimmed to keep at any size.  Good choice for bonsai.  Appreciates evenly moist soil; avoid extremely wet and/or overly dry conditions.  A relative of the popular Benjamin Fig houseplant.  USDA hardiness zones 9-11.  To overwinter, move indoors when temperatures dip into the 50's F.   Available in 2.5"x2.5"x3.5" pots.  Current crop is about 4-6" tall above the soil (4/28/17).  Availability is limited.
