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!

  • Fast growing evergreen tree, so you don't have to wait too long before you can enjoy all the benefits it provides
  • A ficus nitida hedge provides excellent privacy - block out unwanted views in style or create a backyard paradise!
  • Excellent shade tree - wide spreading canopy to cool you off during those sunny outdoor days!
  • Can act as a natural sound barrier - great for planting near busy streets such as highways and freeways!

  1. 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.

  2. Perfect for my Apartment Complex

    I 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 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.

    We 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.

  5. Blocked Out That Ugly View!

    I needed to get some trees to get rid of an apartment complex they decided to build across the street from my house. I went into Moon Valley and showed them some pictures of my yard. The nursery pro Sal came out to my house the same day with the store manager and we measured everything out. They installed 25 of the Hollywood hedges in my backyard that were already 20' tall and gave me instant privacy! You would never even know there was anything behind my house now. One awesome feature of these trees is the amount of noise reduction and dust reduction I have seen in my pool. Love these trees and will be buying some more palms soon to finish my landscape.

    Before having these trees planted by Moon Valley I had my neighbors literally staring directly into my yard. I bought 20' trees and now have the absolute privacy that no fence would have ever been approved by the city of San Clemente. The whole experience was super simple, and more importantly the Hollywood Hedge is healthy and happy!
