I ran into this amazing plant a couple weeks ago out in San Diego. For the life of me I can not figure out what it is and its driving me nuts. I would love to have one of these mixed in with my landscape but do not know what it is. Can someone please help.

This looks to be Ficus elastica, and a beautiful one at that!

|In our part of the world that would 'be careful what you wish for', they become HUGE!|

The less I interfere, the more balance mother nature provides.

|Winter would kill them off here, well, winters like we had this year. I lost over a dozen of them (all potted) simply because I had no room (and did not want to make the effort ) in my greenhouse. I have never seen one actually growing in the ground in the south, other than central and south FL and southern CA. They may be growing in the ground in protected areas though. They are called a "Tree" for a reason and do get huge in tropical and sub-tropical areas.|
