Taken at Muscat, Sultanate of Oman in one of the gardens on the 12th
of November, 2010.
A garden plant in the form of a small bush.
Is it Ficus?

For the above link please go through reconsideration for species for me this is not Ficus americana, this should be a cultivated variety of Ficus microcarpa L.f. (Green Island Fig - Variety) a popular bonsai fig variety in South East Asia and now in India.
Kind regards,

Thanks Garg Ji.
I think you are right.
Although to me it looks more like Ficus microcarpa var. fuyuensis.
I have seen it at Jijamata Udyan in Mumbai too, in their Plant Nursery.


Thanks for the correction.
Regards,
Aarti
