Ficus elastica 'Ruby'
Ficus elastica 'Ruby' is a variegated cultivar of the classic Rubber Tree, whose brightly colored leaves range from electric pink, to ruby red, white and sage green. 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 dynamic foliage make the 'Ruby' cultivar a favorite indoor tree to provide a pop of bright color.
