information: "Midnight" is a new Ficus that
will someday replace the old Ficus benjamina. The leaf shape and
size is nearly identical. "Midnight's" leaf color is a
rich blackish-green gloss. Occasionally the leaves will have a
striking two-tone... dark green, light green pattern in them.
Since Ficus "Midnight" is a hybrid... it's much
easier to grow than the old Ficus benjamina. When shopping for a
plant, look for one that is planted in a peat moss type soil.
Plants in this soil type perform much better than plants in a
hard... heavy soils. Care is identical to Ficus
"Midnight" is available in several container sizes
from 4" starter plants to large specimens in big containers.
You can find them as bushes, braids, spirals and standard tree
forms at your local garden center.
