Tree Ficus microcarpa hillii 'Flash'

 

 

 

 
Description This could be a tall spreading shade tree, but mostly we see this tree ordered for its thick foliage and suitability for instant hedging and screens. 'Flash' has super attractive foliage that consists of different shades of green. They are great for clipping into a tight formal hedge, as a topiary specimen or a screen to 10m if left untrimmed. Just prune to keep shape! They also cope well in many growing situations and soils, in full sun or part shade.

Evergreen
   
Form

Mature Size 10 x 3m    
Uses Can be used as a feature tree in a standard form or just let to grow free. Although its dense foliage and fast growing habit lends itself well to screening and hedging.
