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.

  17. Kay (verified owner)

    Love this little plant! I had to have a huge fig cut down. Can’t live without a fig tree. This looks so healthy and should be perfect. Can’t wait to put it outside. Thanks so much.

  18. Sally Munro (verified owner)

    My plant arrived much more quickly than I expected, in excellent condition with new leaves starting! Very pleased! Too early to put it outside here, but it is doing well in the house.

  19. Kay Ross (verified owner)

    The dwarf fig tree arrived in less than a week and was in perfect condition. I planted it in a pot and within a week there were healthy leaves popping out on every stem. I am thrilled with this purchase and will definitely order plants from them again.

  20. Joan Musselwhite (verified owner)

    Little Miss Figgy arrived about a week after placing the order. Packaging was great. She is in a large container pot on the patio and seems to like it there as I see new growth daily. I’m very happy with this purchase!

  21. ZoeA (verified owner)

    PkNts arrived healthy and strong. I cannot wait to see how they grow and to harvest their fruit for my family and friends:)

  22. Martha H. Smith (verified owner)

    Nice sizes plant that arrived in 2 days. It had several small leaves already on it. I recently moved it outside from my enclosed deck. It has not added any growth yet, but the leaves that were on it have gotten larger and some smaller ones seem to be coming from the stem. The upper braches have not produced yet. Hopefully, this will provide some nice foliage for my yard as well as some figs. Completely satisfied for now.

  23. Susan Davis (verified owner)

    My 2 Little Miss Figgy’s came within 2 days of shipping. Their soil was still wet and the plants were in perfect condition. Planted them 3 days later and they have started putting on new leaves.

  27. Arthur Lombardi (verified owner)

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

  28. Olga Swartz (verified owner)

    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.

  29. Lynne Grinold

    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…

  30. 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+++

  33. Ed Hopper

    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..

  34. Barbara Kushner

    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!

  35. Rachel

    Received plant in great condition, it was full of leaves, so far, so good.

  36. Gary L (verified owner)

    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.

  37. tasleemh13

    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

    I am a retired nurseryman and this plant was first quality and reasonably priced considering the others I found on the internet!

  39. Cheryl McF. (verified owner)

    Fig shrubs arrived quickly and in good condition. They are in the ground and doing well. Happy with purchase.

  40. Jean Virginia Popovic (verified owner)

    My little figgy arrived safely and has acclimated very well. I am in New England and keep it in a sunny, south facing window. It seems a bit leggy now. I’m hoping it will fill out with time.

  41. Laura Railton (verified owner)

    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!

    • Team PBM

      We are hoping to have another crop ready in April of 2022. With having joined the waitlist you’ll be the first to know when they are ready for purchase! – Christy

  42. af50613 (verified owner)

    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.

  43. L.M. Mitchell (verified owner)

    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!

    • Team PBM

      You are very kind. Thank you. Yes our Little Miss Figgys are very loved by us and our customers. So glad you joined the fan club! Happy planting!


  44. Jasmine (verified owner)

    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!

  45. Jerry Andrews

    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.

  46. Steve Jackson (verified owner)

    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.

  47. WILLIAM MADORA (verified owner)

    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.

  48. Lupe Ruttiger (verified owner)

    Great looking plant, nice size, and packaged well. Thank you to Plants By Mail for a great product!

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

  50. Chris M. (verified owner)

    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. 🙂
