I would appreciate it someone could identify this tree for me. It is
located in Camarillo, California (Sunset zone 23). I am considering it
for a backyard tree but I want to know more about it. Links to
pictures below. Thanks for any help
This is a ficus, likely F. elastica (rubber tree) or possibly F.
retusa. Be careful, ficus roots can be very aggressive. After a
while, nothing will grow underneath them.
The first picture was taken at the shopping center where I bought
Indeed. From reading up, it looks like a Ficus microcarpa (F. retusa).
I think it makes a handsome tree when pruned as in the picture.
Considering the "Green Gem" version for an open space in the rear yard.
Thanks for the help.
