Tucson Nitida Ficus?

I have a question for you. Instead of just referencing my question I want to ask our readers it. Why are there no Nitida Ficus Trees in Tucson? Maybe there are but I have not seen them,
I know generally that there are not large numbers of them. Yet if you go to California they are there, or a short trip to Scottsdale allows you to see them growing like Mesquites and Palo verdes. If someone can respond it would be great. Better yet, someone who has one, I look forward to having a Ficus on our list of trees we regularly shape, prune and trim.
11/23/10 .... I have left this question unanswered for a couple of months and decided to answer it partially.  The Nitida Ficus is beautiful and very sensative to cold. Tucson being a few degrees cooler than PHX has a hard time keeping them alive. PHX even during a cold spell will have alot of problems. For the record I lovethe look of the tree and will plant one for myself soon, taking the time to cover it during our cold season.
