Fig, Morton Bay

  • Price: $15.00

It is a large evergreen banyan tree that is a native of most of the eastern coast of Australia. It is a rainforest plant and in this environment more often grows in the form of an epiphytic strangler vine than that of a tree. They can withstand light frosts and can cope with salt-laden spray in coastal situations, and their fruit is beneficial for urban wildlife.

Comments Warnings :  It is best known for its beautiful buttress roots that can reach heights of 60m. The soft light timber has a wavy texture and is used for cases. Aborigines traditionally used the fibres for fishing nets.
