About Little Miss Figgy Dwarf Fig

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

Plant this dwarf fig in Full Sun for best results, anything less will result in low fruit production.

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.

Fertilize in spring with a slow-release balanced fertilizer to get the most growth and fruit as possible from your Little Miss Figgy Dwarf Fig.

Little Miss Figgy Dwarf Fig Spacing Recommendations

Space your Little Miss Figgy Dwarf Figs 4+ feet apart to ensure that you’re able to access the fruit on all sides.

    Miss Figgy arrived dormant, but is a sturdy looking plant that arrived well-packed!

    This is Fall and it’s getting cold. Little Miss Figgy arrived ready for winter, she lost most of her leaves but is a sturdy petite plant with figs still on her. She looks healthy and I’m looking forward to Spring when she’ll fill out with new leaves. I’m pleased with this purchase.

    Very pot bound and pruned to fit in box. Initially lost many leaves that were speckled but now putting out new ones. We’ll see…

  4. Della Brabham (verified owner)

    Little Miss Figgy was great right out of the box! She already had figs on her when she arrived. She’s now happy & growing and doing great. Thanks so much!

    My goodness! I just received my Little Miss Figgy tree and it’s amazing! It’s healthy and lush and arrived in a flash! You can’t go wrong with this one. I’m super excited to watch it grow and thrive. A+++

    Miss Figgy arrived in a very poor condition..the bag it was in was too big so during its rough handling and travel most of the soil fell from the pot exposing the plant roots, a number of leaves dried and fell from poor plant.. The plant is in a sad condition..,I’ve just repotted it…we’ll see if it survives..

    I got mine for Mother’s Day from my wonderful sun…. It came in great shape and so far enjoying living here. I live near Philadelphia and believe it’s too cold to winter it outside…. Any suggestions how I can winter it? I love it! Thanks!

  9. Rachel

    Little Miss figgy was very Pot bound but after a couple of days in the soil she looks great. I’m very happy with the price and delivery.

    Ordered a fig plant – little miss figgy, it arrived on time but the packaging was not good. The main stem was 60% broken along with a side stem. I have for now tried to put a tape on the stem for it to heal, not sure if it would work though. There are 3 tiny leaves on the plant right now. Hoping for it to grow well and the stem to heal
