My other front yard...


By Stan510

My other front yard...

Ficus elastica 'variegated and Cordyline 'electric pink'. Both about 7-8' tall.
Sorry about the blur. I'm having a hard time finding pics of mine of less then 5 mb.

Very healthy small tree! I though it was F. altissima
'variegata' at first. I had a large beautiful F. altissima
'variegata' when I lived in Mission San Jose, Fremont.

I had one going in a greenhouse. That F.altissima was RAMPANT!..It had banyon roots far more then F.bengahlensis or other Ficus species that were there. I never did try it outdoors darn it. And it was my personal plant! donated to the University.

F. altissima seems to have the same hardiness as F. elastica 'Decora' and grows even faster (especially with water, fertilizer and heat).
