The leaves of a Ficus Alii plant are quite different than those of the usual Ficus trees we are familiar with. Ficus Alii plant leaves are medium green, long (3″-10”), narrow, willow-like, and thick. The newer King Alii Ficus plants have wider leaves than the original Ficus Alii trees. New growth on a Ficus Alii Tree is a pretty reddish bronze color until the leaves mature to a natural green color. If you want a Ficus Tree in your home or office, a Ficus Alii is a great alternative to the finicky Ficus Benjamina.
