Park City has a collection of a dozen excellent Ficus (2 each in the East Shoppes and Fountain Shoppes corridors; 4 each in the South and Kohl’s corridors).
This fig is one of the most common and tolerant indoor trees. Each Park City specimen is 7-10 feet tall and very well maintained.
F. benjamina is native to Asia and Australia. Few Americans have any idea what this tame, potted plant can become in its natural environment. The last photo shows a magnificent specimen at the Royal Gardens in Sri Lanka. [Photo by Giuseppe Mazza]
This amazing species has been documented to effectively remove gaseous formaldehyde and other harmful pollutants from indoor air.
