Description

The new Little Miss Figgy Dwarf Fig from the Southern Living Plant Collection 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 day 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.
