Roxburgh Fig is an interesting Ficus which has all the figs growing out of the trunk or larger branches. It is briefly deciduous in early spring for a couple of weeks and grows huge mahogany-colored leaves. There's many planted in San Diego, however, they are one of the expensive species of Ficus.

I make it as interesting as possible. I know when I see a posted picture I want to know where it's located. The cultural requirements and some history of the plant. It makes it easier to decide if I would like to plant a specific tree or flower.

I've learnt so much through your photos.
As you know, I like the unusual name trees :
Sausage Tree, Fish Tail Palm, Signature or Autograph Tree -
fascinating. Thank you.
