The Dragon Tree ranks among the most interesting and eye-catching plants. In cooler and medium warm climates these are popular like houseplants only.
The leathery, sword-shaped leaves are green. Grows very slowly and in 10 years reaches 1 m.
Dragon Tree is insensible against heat and air dryness. For this reason is perfect for central-heated rooms and winter gardens.
If growing conditions are too hot or too dry, brown leaf points appear.
Named "dragon’s blood" in ancient times due to its peculiar red sap, this tropical succulent tree is most unusual. It is native to just a small area on the Canary Islands off the west coast of Africa.
In habitat they grow to a great age.
