Ficus elastica 'Burgundy' has leaves that emerge crimson and then fade to a shade of green so deep that appears nearly black. Native to South Asia, Ficus elastica is a member of the fig genus. Its milky sap was originally used to make latex, which is why this plant is often called the Rubber Tree. Its dramatic, glossy foliage make the 'Burgundy' cultivar a favorite indoor tree for modern, minimalist interiors.
• Light: Bright, indirect light
• Water: Water when the top few centimeters of soil dries out
