A recent introduction with amazing, large, deeply cut dark green leaves that turn a rich butter yellow in autumn. This may or may not produce edible figs but if fruit is your priority there are other, more readily available varieties such as 'Brown Turkey' that will guarantee you a great crop.
'Ice Crystal' should be grown for it's superb exotic foliage and for this reason advice for growing figs should be ignored Instead it should be planted in fertile, moist but well-drained soil in part shade. And don't even think about restricting its roots!
Grow in fertile, moist but well-drained soil in part shade.
