    The Rusty fig is a great option if you need a dense green screen. The dark leaves provide a lush feeling and the faint “rust” colour underneath adds some pzazz! The striking light grey stem evolves over time to become a thick buttressed trunk and is preferred by landscapers who are looking for a feature to the garden. In addition, the Rusty fig also has an excellent tolerance to withstand strong winds and can therefore also be used as a windbreak.
