Once a month we will highlight a plant that is both suitable and stylish for the traditional Auckland garden. This month our plant is : 

Ficus microcarpa Hillii :

This beautiful ornamental evergreen is perfect for those urban spaces that require an attractive screen, either as a formal pleached hedge or as a stand alone specimen tree. Native to many parts of the world, including Australia, the Ficus microcarpa Hillii is widely utilised in National parks and gardens. It's lush dark green oval foliage will add elegance to any Auckland garden setting, or use it in containers as an indoor plant or bonsai tree.
