It is important to always check to make sure a landscape plant is not listed by regulatory agencies as invasive, and creeping fig, Ficus pumila, is not on any invasive lists I am aware of. The plant is actually a relatively slow grower.
Here the plant is also shown growing on the historical Lady of LaLeche Chapel in St. Augustine.
