Ficus microcarpa hillii ‘Flash’

A fast growing tree that is useful for quick and thick screening and hedging, and if let to grow naturally, as a shade tree for larger gardens and parks. Like most plants from the fig family, the root system can be on the aggressive side, so be careful where you plant it. It will withstand boggy periods and root disturbance, and grow in sun and part shade. It is very amenable to hard pruning to shape it, so is also good for bonsai and topiary work.
