A pretty cool introduction from Cistus Nursery from a batch of seedlings and this stood out with its silvery filigreed leaves.  A surprisingly hardy Fig with intriguing foliage and small figs which we have heard rumors of being edible.  Insert disclaimer here.  We've seen the species growing quite happily in the Cistus display gardens near Portland which attests to its love of heat (they are hot in so many ways) which we don't get here in maritime Port Townsend but which it does have in its native Iran and Afghanistan.  Plant this in a hot spot that gets on the dry side - it should love it.
