    Bring enchantment to your garden with a Dragon Tree, a low-maintenance succulent tree with mystical appeal. The Dragon Tree may look like a palm tree when young and unbranched but an older, branched Dracaena draco is exotic and quite striking.

    Native to the Canary Islands, Dragon Tree is a slow growing, evergreen with blue-green, sword-shaped foliage held in rosettes at the end of the trunk. Old leaves naturally shed from the outer edges of the rosettes and leave behind scars on the trunk that suggest a scaly dragon’s leg.

    The Dragon Tree will remain unbranched until it is mature enough to flower and then small greenish-white flowers on 2 ft. long flower spikes will appear in late spring-early summer followed by persistent strands of red-orange berries that attract birds. Two or more branches will start to develop on opposite sides of the flower. It may take 10 years or so to reach a mature branching size.

    Drought tolerant, the Dragon Tree can capture and utilize the rains or moisture in the air with their 2 ft. long, thick, fleshy, smooth leaves which are held in clusters. Canary Islands Dragon Tree is best in nearly frost-free Mediterranean climates and is tolerant of salt spray, drought, and extreme heat.

    Dracaena draco is remarkable in the garden when planted in large containers or used as a specimen plant and is a must have for anyone looking to add magic and fantasy to their waterwise garden. Order your Dragon Tree today.

    Plant care

    Plant your Dracaena draco in full sun or partial shade in soil with excellent drainage and water deeply and infrequently.  The slow growing roots will rot if the root zone is allowed to remain wet.

    Dragon Trees are very slow-growing monocots and may take up to 10 years before they reach a height of 4 feet. The trunk remains unbranched until it is mature enough to flower. Its fabled "dragon's blood" is a red, resinous sap.

    Dragon Tree is low maintenance and drought tolerant. A slow-release, general fertilizer can be applied. No pruning is required except to remove dead or damaged leaves.

    This unusual and exotic succulent tree will capture your imagination for years to come.
