Ficus Tuffi Standards

Ficus Tuffi Standards


Ficus Tuffi Standards

Perhaps the most popular plant for hedging and fence line privacy in Auckland's central suburbs. These trees can transform your backyard into a private sanctuary in the heart of the city.

These Ficus Tuffis are standards, which means lower branches have been trimmed as they grow and trunks have been trained straight as an arrow. 

This makes them very attractive trees to create cover along fence lines. They can also be grown in pots around decks and entrances to bring some nature into bullt spaces.  if trimmed regularly.

Updated Jul/Aug

Total height now 1.5 metres including pot.  

Ideal for floating hedges, formal looking gardens and along fence lines. 

How tall will Ficus Tuffi grow?

Ficus Tuffi grow quickly, and will comfortably reach 3m tall in good soil with adequate light.  They're a very hardy tree that responds well to a regular trim so if your space is smaller its easy enough to maintain them at a lower heigh if needed. It is a very versatile tree and ideal for maintaining privacy from the neighbours windows and roof line, while still letting plenty of light through.


Can Ficus Tuffi be used for hedges?

Ficus Tuffi is ideal for hedging due its dense foliage, interesting shades of green, ranging from pale green, to lime, to dark and resilient leaves which don't mind being trimmed back and shaped twice a year for maintaining sharp attractive hedges. Using standards for hedging helps give a formal look, and lower demand on roots.

Tree size guide.

Regular Auckland homes.

Regular ceiling height in Auckland homes is 2.4m, so Small, Medium and Large trees all work well if this is you. Keep in mind as the sizes step up trees become wider too, so you should consider your space when choosing the ideal size.

Villas, bungalows and high ceilings.

Auckland villa ceilings range from 3.3 to 3.6m while Bungalow ceilings are 2.7m and archetectual homes may be even higer. Huge and Massive sizes work will well here, or to really fill the space you could consider a Reindeer (see below).

Customer reviews

"The family that runs this place are the most genuinely kind people who are so passionate and happy to help. Great range of trees and good prices, hard to know why you’d go anywhere else."

Oliver Cooper - 5 Star Google Review

"This place is fantastic. Trees are beautiful and fresh, and the staff are super friendly and very helpful. Misa trim and shape their trees right up to the day you get to choose one! The trees are always fresh, in water and in the shade - which is probably why they are by far the best! Every tree we have taken home from the farm has lasted at least 4 weeks (often 5, even 6) before losing the fresh colour and smell - so long as you remember to keep them watered! The farm also sells stands, lights, etc, and offer a very speedy delivery service. for 10 years now, choosing a tree from here is one of our favourite Christmas traditions. If you haven't already, make Misa one of yours!"
