Ficus altissima 'Yellow Gem' commonly called the lofty fig has beautifully variegated leaves with bright green and yellow. The lush and bushy leaves make this plant an excellent choice as an indoor or patio feature plant, especially since it will get quite large -a plant that will nearly reach your ceiling.

Ficus plants have extremely invasive roots so, in urban gardens, it is strongly advisable to keep them in pots or containers rather than planting them in the ground.
