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.

    This fig arrived in Winter ’20/’21, very well packaged and in perfect condition. I live in zone 9b, so I hardened it off outside the first week after it arrived. The fig was completely dormant (just sticks!) when it arrived. I patiently waited…and waited some more…and then…leaves! Beautiful leaves and now figs! I love the smaller size of this tree and it’s beautiful. I have put myself on the waitlist for another!

    I was absolutely impressed by the how robust this plant was upon arrival. There were figs on the tree(s) and so healthy. I have it growing in pots. The plants came out of dormancy and are thriving.

    Ordered this plant in early February and was chagrined by what normally would have been good news that it was arriving in a couple of days. We were experiencing record cold single digit temps at the time. However, my fears were unwarranted. Miss Figgy was exceptionally well packed and arrived in perfect condition. Furthermore I received prompt and thoughtful advice from Christine when I requested information on growing this as a container plant. I just put it outside and am waiting for it to break dormancy. I can’t wait to see this beautifully structured tree develop!

    Thank you Plants by Mail! This Little Miss Figgy exceeded my expectations. Beautifully pruned, structured for springtime growth and over two feet tall! This is no 2 inch twig which I’ve seen for sale on other websites….and have previously purchased! Well worth the price. I am impressed with the care and detail given to produce such a gorgeous specimen of nature. My family and I look forward to a bountiful harvest. Thank you!

    As usual, healthy plant delivered straight from the nursery in dormant stage. Ordered in January and don’t expect leaves until April/May. Can’t wait to transplant into a 30 gallon container for mobility in case of freezing weather.

    Great price, ordered on Friday and received the following Thursday. Well packed for shipment. Arrived dormant, late February and roots looked healthy. Can’t wait to plant in March.

    We love our Miss Figgy! It arrived packaged well flushed with leaves. It lost quite a few leaves, but within 3 weeks the tree had more than replenished the leaves with new growth and many figs! We proudly display Miss Figgy on our sunny porch for everyone to see.

    Little Miss Figgy arrived safe, healthy and very happy! She is thriving in her new container!

    I contacted customer service when I hadn’t received my plant within two weeks because of a FedEx issue . Christy quickly and kindly responded and had another sent out immediately. Christy is also quite helpful in answering any questions you may have via email. I have transplanted my Little Miss Figgy into a larger container and she is quite happy, just over a week after receiving her. 🙂
