This interesting Ficus tree is known as the Philippine Fig, Dracaena Fig or Palm-Leaf Fig. I have not pruned it for some time now and finally it is looking real big and nice!

The long wavy leaves are arranged spirally around the branch, giving it rosette appearance. It is definitely one of the rarer Fig trees that I come across.
