The Ficus Burgundy, or rubber tree, is known for its glossy burgundy leaves and latex sap that was once used in rubber production! This same sap makes the Ficus elastica toxic, so the best practice is to keep it out of the reach of curious pets and small children. Give your Ficus Burgundy plenty of bright indirect light to help it retain its dramatic foliage.

  • Each plant is unique; size and shape fluctuate by season so all measurements are shown as a range
  • Small plant measures between 6-10" from the soil line to the top of the foliage
  • Medium plant measures between 10-16" from the soil line to the top of the foliage
  • Arrives in a nursery grow pot nestled in your planter choice

Plant Bio

Ficus elastica is a species of evergreen tropical tree native to Indochina and belonging to the fig family, Moraceae. Due to the amount of isoprene it produces, its latex sap was once used to make rubber before synthetics and other natural alternatives became available. In addition to being useful for rubber, in India, the Ficus elastica roots are used to make living bridges. A rotting tree trunk is put across a river, and the rubber tree's roots are guided along the trunk, eventually growing to the other side, and thickening to complete the bridge. The bridge, being alive and flexible, resists wind and flooding.
