Rubber Plant ‘Burgundy’

Ficus elastica decora Cvs.

I’d never been keen on rubber plants until I crossed paths with this beautiful ‘Burgundy’ variety. It’s just different enough to cast off the ‘office plant’ vibe I get from your typical rubber plant. The leaf green is slightly bluish, and new growth and stems have complimentary red tones – paired with its powder blue pot, it creates a bold foil to the smaller houseplants next to it on the window sill.
