Creeping fig or Ficus pumila is an oldie but a goodie. Can remove paint and render from walls though! Best when pruned regularly for flat and consistent coverage.
Last week was spent in South Carolina visiting my husband's parents in Kiawah Island and soaking up some much needed sun. Kiawah is not far from the beautiful city of Charleston so we planned a day in town and, on my father-in-law's recommendation, visited the website of the Historic Charleston Foundation prior to our trip and booked tickets for a guided walking tour in the morning and an afternoon garden tour. Charlestonians are clearly very house- and garden-proud and every home, whether…

Creeping Fig - Not Edible!
"Ficus pumila" This is the grown up version of that tiny-leafed pot plant known as the "Creeping Fig." My neighbor planted it to cover an old Chinese Tallow Tree but our warm climate allowed it to flourish into a 20+' monster with woody stems and these 3" to 4" fruits. It covered the Tallow trunk and suffocated it until a large limb fell. They hired a crew to remove it.
Creeping Fig - Ficus pumila
Creeping clinging vine. Small 1 inch leaves that lie flat - ideal cover. I think this is only marginally hardy here but used a lot in southern part of state. I had a plant of it last year, but didn't survive mild winter and in a sheltered location. So was surprised to see this so well established on the steps of law offices across from CPW office building.
