Uses
A good selection for hedging or screening, or as a topiary feature. Suitable for planting near pools as it has a fibrous root system with a smaller footprint. A great alternative to Ficus hillii 'Flash' where larger root systems are a concern, or where green foliage needs to be maintained through Winter as 'Sublime isn't susceptible to yellowing or spotting from the cold.
Position & Soil
Plant in full sun to part shade. Does tolerate a wide range of conditions including heavy clay loams and is tolerant of drought and coastal situations. Like most species, 'Sublime' prefers fertile, well-drained soil rich in organic matter. Tolerates light frosts but expect tip burn with heavy frosts. Coastal plantings require protection. Fertilise with slow release fertiliser in late winter and early autumn.
