Ficus Audrey (Ficus Benghalensis)
Styled in Twill Tripod Plant Stand Large
The Ficus Audrey (Ficus Benghalensis) is an attractive foliage plant that is native to South East Asian and some Pacific islands.
Ficus Audrey is one of the pure green fig varieties. It produces glossy, oval, thick green leaves with striking yellow veins. It is often sought after by plant collectors because of its elegant glossy look.
The trunk of Ficus Benghalensis develops aerial and buttressing roots to anchor in the soil. It has deep burgundy glossy oval leaves which develop inside a sheath which will grow larger as the new leaf develops. The mature leaf will unfurl, dropping the sheath off the plant. As a large, evergreen fig tree, the Audrey can grow up to 30m when grown outdoor in ideal conditions.
