Do fig trees need a lot of sun?

Figs have beautiful leaves, don't they?

Are you going to grow one because you like the foliage or because you want to harvest fruit? Though figs grow best in warmer climates, they do well in Virginia, too. Thomas Jefferson grew several different varieties at Monticello! A warm spot with morning sun is best. Have you researched protecting the fig tree in the winter? It will help it overwinter.

Thanks for writing!
