A popular hedging line for warmer areas. Attractive, glossy leaves are light green when young and contrast nicely with dark green mature foliage. Ficus tuffy is a similar colour green to Griselinia littoralis but the leaves are smaller, softer and easier to trim, leaving a clean formal look. They create a fast growing and hardy hedge or for topiary use, they can be shaped into cones, pillars or lollipops. They are frost tender so should not be used in areas that get hard frosts.
