This is Ficus religiosa, also known as sacred fig, bodhi tree, pippala tree, peepul tree, peepal tree, and ashwattha tree. Growing up to 100 feet tall, this tree attracts a wide variety of bees, birds, and butterflies. This tree likes to live in full sun where it sports chartreuse, yellow, and green blossoms from late Winter until early Spring. The leaves on this tree continuously move around even if there is no wind or breeze to move them. This fact has made this tree very popular with some religions. Ficus, in general, are larval host plants for the Fig sphinx moth, and the Antillean Daggerwing butterfly. USDA Hardiness Zones 10 to 11
