O.K., I always keep all the "stuff" that comes with the plants I buy. I looked it up and the fig trees came from Territorial Seed Company. They are Fig Negronne (Ficus carica). They get 8-10' tall but do nicely if pruned to a smaller size. USDA Zone 7. Hardy to between 0°F-5°F but "we recommend protecting the plant if temperatures drop between 15°F-20°F for an extended period of time."
And all ficus do great if they are in pots. Root bound isn't a bad thing with ficus!
