Ever wonder what those gorgeous, leafy trees are called …you know, the ones that often grace the cover of magazines …
… and seem to be nestled in the corners of the most glamorous, swoonworthy rooms.
It’s called a fiddle-leaf fig!
I have been searching for one of these trees (actually a bush!) for many years now. Finally, I asked at my favorite florist (locals … you all know Sadie at The English Garden Flower Shop) where I could find one.
As always, she came through for me and tracked down several sizes at one of her growers in Florida.
I wanted tall and trimmed (topiary style). You can also get them where the leaves grow all the way down the trunk.
A week later, she delivered this beauty to my living room!
I just love the big full leaves. These plants like lots of indirect light and to dry out a little between waterings.
I hope she will be happy in my living room for many years to come!
