Ficus pumila from Connie Roth

Posted on |

This is vine growing on our brick around garage. I have not seen it flower. I’d like to know it’s name. It is located in Mt. Pleasant, SC. Thanks.

Hi Connie,

this is a cultivated vine called the climbing fig, Ficus pumila.  It does form a fruit similar to the edible fig, but I doubt it is edible.  It does grow into a very nice tough cover on brick walls, especially.
