A tropical and lush evergreen tree that is also a very popular hedge. As a tree, Indian Laurel Ficus can reach heights of 25-30' tall with a 35-40' spread in California. As a hedge, it can easily be pruned to a 6' high dense green wall or taller. Consistent shearing or pruning is required to maintain shape and density. The branches are thickly covered with elliptic green leaves. The new growth is lime green and look stunning against the older, darker leaves giving Ficus nitida a nice two-tone effect.
