Ficus 'Indian Laurel' (Ficus nitida)
The Ficus 'Indian Laurel' is one of the best medium to large shade trees you can find! Ficus nitida is native to Asia and Hawaii and is an evergreen tree ideal for growing in the Southwest. In fact, this single-trunk variety loves to grow where there's plenty of full sun exposure. Of course, one of its big selling features is its wide spreading canopy, which features lush green foliage that adds beauty to any environment. We love to plant them on any landscape that could benefit from its generous shade capability. When properly placed around a home, its canopy can provide enough shade to help cool the home, which can lead to lower utility bills and a more comfortable indoor environment during those hot days.
As great as this Indian Laurel Ficus tree is for shade, it can also add some much-needed privacy. We love to plant them around property lines, where they can block out unwanted views in style and help homeowners achieve their own private backyard paradise! After all, Ficus nitida fits well with any tropical theme landscape, so they look fantastic planted with palm trees and other plants. It has a fast growth rate, so you won't be waiting too long for it to add shade and privacy into your landscape. Best of all, once established, this drought-tolerant tree keeps its lush green appearance even in the most water-wise landscapes! Are you looking for a tree to act as a natural sound barrier? People that live near busy streets will want to plant Ficus 'Indian Laurel' trees, as it can help reduce noise, while adding some valuable curb appeal too!
Shade, privacy, beauty - this tropical tree has got it all and then some! Of course, if you want to bring instant natural maturity to your site today, we recommend buying as big as you can, and at Moon Valley Nurseries we have the bigger trees available right now!

- Awesome treesI bought a privacy hedge and immediately fell in love with Moon Valley, They came out and professionally planted my trees that I got to hand pick! I didn't have to worry about a thing as it came with a free warranty. As soon as my trees were planted, they started to explode in growth and starting exceeding my expectations. I wouldn't want any other trees from anyone else. 10/10

- Excellent service!Triston at the Carmel Valley store was super helpful in helping us pick our trees out for our home in Coronado. He was always available to answer follow up questions as well and the planting crew he sent were very careful and conscientious and did an excellent job!
- Indian Laurel Columns transformed an busy-street facing yard into a mysterious front yard privacy hedge.Our home in Santa Cruz was built in 1885. In the early 2000's it was restored. We added Victorian gardens to honor house, but we needed privacy, as we live on a fairly busy street. Taking out our front lawns (good for conservation), we installed 40 Indian Laurel columns. This literally transformed the front yard space into a lovely, private, and somewhat mysterious entry to our home and gardens. Great work by MVN with regard to installation.
- a generous hedge tree that will go as high as you will let it, so keep an eye on it.This is a no-brainer choice for hedges meant to contain the visual boundaries of your own world, and keep the neighbor's world out. I have several houses, and use it in each for different challenges. Some I keep at 10 feet, but at one location I called in the Ficus brigade to help with a neighbor who built a 3 story house right on top of me, over looking my pool and garden and peering over my house. Imagine...Well, up went the ficus and 3 years later there is absolutely no evidence of this monster next to us. It's a full, thick continuous 50 foot hedge. However, keep in mind that the taller they go, the bigger the roots.
- Perfect for my Apartment ComplexI own an apartment complex and needed to create a sound barrier and privacy screen for my residents. We planted nearly 300 of these trees over the last two years and have gotten nothing but compliments from our residents. This blocks so much road noise, creates such a beautiful privacy screen and actually has done a great job of keeping the dust down. I highly recommend these for anyone wanting shade or privacy.
- Manny helped us select this 12 year old treeSee comment above.
Manny helped us select this 12 year old tree. We paid a fair amount for it but it was well worth it.We received many compliments from our neighbors. We are very pleased with the choice and the advice from Manny.
- Perfect for privacyWe went into the nursery this past weekend and purchased 15 Huge Instant India Laurels to create our own Hollywood style hedge. They were planted today and they are perfect! Already blocking out the two story house behind us! We like to sit on our patio and enjoy a drink at night and now I feel comfortable knowing people aren’t peeping in on us.
