Ficus lyrata, Fiddle-Leaf Ficus
 Ficus lyrata
Family: Moraceae
Fiddle-Leaf Ficus
Origin: Tropical Africa
big treefull sunmoderate waterornamental foliageSeaside, salt tolerant plantincuded in CD catalog

Large forty feet tree with fiddle-shape leaves that are thick, leathery with yellow-green veins. The fruit are figs that are dotted white. Popular indoors when young and used as a shade tree in the tropics. It is valued for its smaller stature, making it useful when other banyans are too large. It is also grown indoors in cooler climates. The fruit (syconium or fig) and reproduction systems of species in the genus Ficus are unique. Each species of Ficus has an associated species of agaonid wasp. Ficus species can only be pollinated by their associated agaonid wasps and in turn, the wasps can only lay eggs within their associated Ficus fruit.
