    This tree is very popular for the topiary standards or ‘lollipops’ for your garden. Having pale grey bark and lush small green leaves enables any landscaper to make a statement with a stylized tree clipped in the shape you prefer. In the “wilder” garden setting, the Laurel fig also works excellently as a screening tree or hedge that can be tamed to any height desired. Given the space, this tree can also spread its canopy to create a dense shade tree. The minimal leaf turnover means this tree is an excellent choice for those who just want to enjoy their garden without putting in many hours of maintenance work. Lastly, this tree is also an excellent choice for public parks and along pavements in the urban environment due to its hardy nature.
