Bo-Tree, Sacred Ficus. This large deciduous tree is sacred to the Hindus and Buddhists, under which Budda received enlightenment. This fast growing tree usually begins as an epiphytem (air plant, grows on trees) but develops roots to support its height of ninety plus feet. The Bo-Tree has purple figs and is different from other species, because of its slender, long leaf tip.

Can be grown as bonsai.
