The Dapple Designs Expert Says:

Ficus platypoda or Desert Fig is an attractive medium sized tree thats native to Australia. It grows well in tropical areas through to cooler areas. Its roots can be invasive so make sure to plant this tree away from underground pipes and services. Yellow fruits can be seen on the tree for many months
