Creeping Fig is an outstanding evergreen that is routinely used to cover stark, barren walls with curtains of dense, deep-green foliage. This self-clinging vine adheres effortlessly to most surfaces, quickly scrambling upwards as far as it can be supported. Once it reaches the uppermost boundary of its support, it will continue branching outward, eventually creating a low mat over the entire area. Though Creeping Fig is most commonly seen climbing the walls, it is also ideal for use in topiaries, as a thick groundcover, and even indoors or outside in containers! Plum-sized fruit, used to make jelly in Taiwan and Singapore, appears rarely, and only on mature branches.
