Common Name: Rubber Plant, Rubber Tree, Rubber Fig
USDA Hardiness Zones: 10-11 (outdoors)
The Ficus Burgundy, also known as the rubber plant or rubber fig, is popular among homeowners due to its prolific fleshy burgundy leaves and low maintenance. Native to India and Southeast Asia, the Ficus elastica 'Burgundy' is perfect for those looking for a small indoor tree with stunning dark, shiny leaves. In the wild, it grows up to around 200ft tall, and its roots are used in India to form living bridges. Don't worry, it will only reach heights of 4 to 6 feet when grown indoors. It won't do well in low light spaces, so place in bright indirect light. Water to keep soil moist at all times. Ficus elastica is a source of latex that is toxic to the skin, and poisonous if taken internally, so pet-owners and those allergic to latex should be cautious.
Please note: (Mildly) toxic to humans, cats and dogs if ingested
