Ficus pumila, the creeping fig, is a woody evergreen vine which self suckers onto walls and fences to create a dense and fine leafed covering. It has small leaves, but as it ages it will develop larger leaves as well. It can become a problem in warm areas where it can become somewhat too enthusiastic to invasive, and care should be taken on house walls where it may damage brickwork. Like most figs, the roots can be invasive as well, and can lift paths and get into drains. It is a hardy plant, and does well in most soil types in sun to shade. It can be container grown, and can be used indoors. It can also be used for topiary work.
