    Dracaena draco “Dragon Tree” is a large branching tree that is native to the Canary Islands where you will find them growing in open rocky outcrops.

    The Dragon Tree is an incredible living fossil, a structural masterpiece that looks more like an Aloe when young. As the Dragon Tree matures starts growing branches with crowns of long bluish leaves, leaf scars look like the skin of a reptile and when wounded, the tree ‘bleeds’ a deep red sap known as ‘Dragons Blood’. In ancient time this was used for embalming and alchemy.

    A perfect plant for many different garden designs the dragon tree in a pot or in the garden looks more like a statue and should be planted in a position that can be really appreciated. A very hardy plant, but prefers well-draining soil, warmth and full sun.
