Description

The new Little Miss Figgy Dwarf Fig from the Southern Living Plants is a winning addition to any landscape or garden! Figs are one of those fruits that you need to grow to fully appreciate. This is because figs only last a few days after being picked, making them difficult to keep fresh.

If you plant the Little Miss Figgy Dwarf Fig, you'll find yourself laden every year with delicious dark purple figs with rich strawberry-red centers. This fruit is smooth and delightfully sweet, and you'll get to enjoy it in both spring, as well as fall. In addition, figs are fantastic for your health, as they are high in fiber, and contain magnesium, copper, potassium, and calcium.

Furthermore, dark green leaves with deep lobes attract attention even when this shrub lacks fruit. Use it as an eye-catching accent, a fantastically textured low-hedge, or a unique mass planting.

This shrub is deciduous, meaning it will go dormant every winter, and return with a vengeance every spring. Expect it to reach 4-6' high x 3-4' wide once matured.

The Little Miss Figgy is more cold-hardy than other figs and is capable of growing from USDA Zones 7-10. However, this shrub also has an impressive heat tolerance, making it perfect for southern gardeners as well.

Check out a couple other Southern Living Plant Collection fruiting varieties, the Takes the Cake Blueberry, Bless Your Heart Blueberry, Osage Blackberry, Navaho Blackberry, and Prime-ark Freedom Blackberry.

*The Little Miss Figgy Dwarf Fig is a deciduous/semi-evergreen plant and will go dormant during the winter months. When this plant is ordered during the Fall/Winter expect seasonal foliage decline(discoloration, spots, leaf drop) or the plant to arrive completely dormant.*

Little Miss Figgy Dwarf Fig Care

This fig doesn't have strict soil requirements and is even capable of growing in heavy clay soils. Consequently, if planted in clay soil, be sure not to over-water it. Weekly waterings may be required during dry spells.

Care & Use

Getting Started: Understanding Your New Plant

Review your plant's information on our website or the tag that comes with it. Be mindful of sunlight preferences, soil type, and spacing needs.

Our plants are adaptable but grow best in the correct USDA Zones. Click here to learn more about your USDA Zone.

Planting Instructions

Dig a Hole

First, dig a hole three times the width of the root ball of your plant. This makes it easier for the root system to spread out quickly. Dig the hole deep enough that your plant will sit level with or slightly above the ground around it.

Amend Your Soil

Mix your native soil with rich gardening soil to provide extra nutrients and support plant growth. If your soil is clay-heavy, we recommend mixing your native clay soil with equal parts of Pine Bark mulch to improve drainage and the overall breathability of your soil.

Place Your Plant

Examine the roots. If they appear tightly bound, gently coax them apart; this ensures they can spread into the new soil. Place your plant in the hole so the top of the rootball is even with the surrounding soil—Backfill around it with the amended soil mixture. The roots need access to oxygen for your plant to thrive, so do not cover the rootball; place soil around it.

Mulch Your Plants

Top the soil beneath your plant with 3-4 inches of mulch to help it retain moisture. Be careful not to cover the rootball - your new plants roots need access to oxygen.

Water Your Plant

Soak the plant with a hose afterward to hydrate the plant, as well as get the soil and mulch situated. Develop a regular watering schedule based on your plant's needs and local weather patterns. Remember, over watering is just as, if not more, harmful than under watering.
