The Rubber plant is an evergreen tree, native to Indonesia and China. As the 'Elastica' name hints, it was once used to make rubber before the western world found cheaper alternatives. Also 'Ficus' makes it a relative of the popular Fig tree - where you can spot commonalities between their thick glossy leaves.
