The Long-leaf Fig is a relatively new cultivar with superior ability in holding leaves compared with ficus benjamina cultivars. It has long narrow willow-like leaves. A plant that looks attractive as a stand-alone specimen or as part of a mixed display. Larger specimens are especially useful as feature plants in warm, well-lit atria, shopping malls and offices. A tree of dense growth and pendant habit which may grow to several metres in height. The shiny, deep green leaves are up to 10" long and tapering to a slender point. Leaf width depends on variety; Alii or Amstel King. Makes a good container specimen or bonsai.
