Ficus pumila ‘Ice Caps’ - Variegated Creeping FigRegular price $15.00
Ficus pumila 'Ice Caps' features all the best parts of the easy going F. pumila but each leaf as a solid white margin giving this climber a dainty white speckle appearance. Slower growing that its non-variegated sibling, Ice Caps will not tolerate direct sunlight as its leaves may burn.
