FICUS macrophylla (Moreton Bay Fig)

A hardy native, medium to large spreading tree with large dark glossy green leaves which are rusty underneath and often has a buttressed trunk. It makes an excellent, bushy plant for a large container but it should not be planted in the ground in a normal suburban environment. It is an excellent shade tree for parks and larger properties and is widely used as a feature tree in parks and gardens. An iconic tree of South East Queensland.
