Ficus pumila (Creeping Fig) is a vigorous growing self-clinging evergreen vine that holds securely to any surface via aerial rootlets. The leaves are heart-shaped forming an interesting pattern as they cover large areas quickly. Ficus pumila is an excellent way to add character to a garden wall. It is best used on concrete or brick because it destroys wood if allowed to grow on it.
