A tropical garden with some temperate surprises

Ficus pumila

Sharing yet another 'repens' (creeping and rooting) this is a vigorous #Creeper, commonly used as #ivy to cover walls. However, the roots can penetrate deep into the walls and may pose a hazard. I regularly strip them from the walls of my 🏡, but they're safe enough and look stunning on compounds! We call it "Waghnakhi" which means "tiger claw", signifying the strength with which this Creeper latches on to its support! #ficus #groundcover
