The name Lyrata refers to the lyre-shaped, or violin/fiddle-shaped outline of the leaves of this ever-popular plant. This big, strong, flowering fig from West Africa rapidly grows into an imposing 50' tall tree in the ground, and into a big, robust, strongman of a specimen in our homes. Shiny, cardboardy/leathery leaves of medium green with fuzzy/felty undersides sporting yellow veins grow on shaggy brown stems, reaching out everywhere. Unruly branches can be pruned for a more reasonable shape; in fact, the Ficus Lyrata is trimmed and trained on purpose in several styles. Bushes, straight columns, bare-trunked standard trees, and more. Choose your shaping style to fit your space. In the right light, bright window Lyratas will grow like crazy for you once they're used to their spot.
