Selected by plantsman extraordinaire Sean Hogan for its vigorous silver-laced green foliage, aptly named ‘Silver Lyre’ is a probable Ficus afghanistanica hybrid. Drought tolerant upright woody stems soar skyward, dramatically guised with snowflake-shaped rough-to-the touch mercury-hued foliage. While the green-leafed species gallivants throughout northern India, western Iran and Afghanistan, this mesmerizing relatively hardy selection may need some winter protection in our U.S. gardens plus a hot well-drained sunny spot, where it spawns small edible fruit and can be showcased against a dark green setting.
