You can request
a “Hold Order” for Hardy Perennials and we will ship them
when it’s planting time in your zone. Otherwise, Hardy
Perennials can be kept in a cool or cold spot like an unheated
garage, cool cellar or outbuilding. Cover the pot and soil
with insulating material (burlap, clean rags, newspaper) and
check the soil every 2-3 weeks to make sure it doesn’t dry
out completely. In the spring, plant as soon as the ground
is open and no longer frozen. Dormant plants can endure
freezing temperatures in the spring as long as the plant
remains dormant without any green buds.
Fig ‘Petite Negra’ (Ficus carica)
‘Petite Negra’ is an amazing fruiting fig that produces medium sized plump black juicy figs at a young age. This impressive fig is perfect for the indoor or patio gardener since it starts fruiting when plants are less than 12” tall. ‘Petite Negra’ is an ornamental beauty as well since the mitten-shaped green leaves make a lovely backdrop for the ripening deep purple fruit. Grow in full sun on a windowsill or outside in warm temperatures. If growing conditions are kept warm, it will hold its foliage year-round. Under cool temperatures, the plant will drop its leaves and go dormant until temperatures warm up.
Hardy to Zone 8 and higher for outdoors.
Full sun, grows to 2-3' in container, minimum temperature indoors 30°, summer bloomer.
I received this plant on May 20, only to find that it had a little fruit growing on it! :D It came in perfectly healthy condition. Thanks Logees! Now, Ill be able to get figs from this little tree without having to go to some foreign store to get them! I can never find figs
In stores. Yay! To make it even better, its really easy to take care of! You just need to water it when it gets dry and fertilize it!

Delicious figs on a perfectly sized tree
This plant arrived in wonderful condition with my first order. It was a lot bigger and stronger than I had expected from any nursery. Suffice it to say that Ive had bad experiences with other nurseries. I will definitely be doing more business with Logees.
Fresh figs are next to impossble to find in the grocery stores and farmers markets where I live. Theyre one of my favorite fruits, but Im in USDA zone 5B, so I cant grow them outdoors. Which is why I was so thrilled to find a fig that has been bred for container growing. It lives outside for the summer and in the garage for the winter.
It can be grown just about anywhere in the country provided that you keep it outside in the summer heat and either insulate it heavily for the cold months or overwinter it in the coldest part of the house.
