Ficus pumila-Creeping Fig
Moraceae Family

Evergreen vine native of the far east and Australia.  It will attach itself firmly to nearly any surface in sun or in shade.  As it matures, the leaves become larger.  It is slow to establish but eventually can cover a large area.  It will also at maturity produce good sized but inedible fruit.
