Does anyone know is their is such a fig tree that grows sideways instead of upward? Basically low to the ground like a grape vine.

I think you have the correct name for it but, I could not tell you much about it.  I saw a YouTube Video on one that a nursery owner had for several years and used to provide cuttings from.
Figs are Fun!!

Never had a weeping fig, but I've had other upside down trees before. I was told by a nurseryman that these "weeping trees" are created by starting grafts upside down. Not sure if that is how the weeping fig you are referencing was made, but if that's the case, it should be pretty simple to make one yourself. Could be a fun experiment!

Miss figgy? Sounds funny!! I followed lafig post and Mary had posted a couple pictures of a weeping fig, I actually commented on her post and couldn't remember,  I just think it would be a awesome tree to have if you set it high so the branches will come downward.
