Dracaena draco – Dragon Tree Seeds – 5 Seed Count
Dracaena draco (Dragon Tree) – An attractive and an interesting succulent tree that is commonly used as a house plant, but if planted in the ground in
a near frost free climate it will grow to a massive and broad tree that is 25 feet tall and as wide and, with great age, even larger – one of the tallest
ever recorded was over 70 feet tall. The terminal ends of the thick branches hold clusters of 2 foot long by 1 1/2 inch wide pliable sword-shaped blue-green
leaves. In early summer appear the greenish-white flowers that are followed by orange berries. This plant remains unbranched until it flowers or is otherwise
damaged and then produces two large heavy branches on either side of the inflorescence. When the bark is cut or bruised the sap flows as a reddish colored resin.
This resin, one of the sources of a substance known as Dragon’s blood can be used to stain wood. Plant in full sun or part shade.
Water infrequently and deeply – do not allow the root zone to remain wet as this is the easiest way to kill this plant.
It is hardy to about 20-25°F. A very hardy and drought tolerant tree that tolerates extreme heat, winds and salt spray.
This plant is native to the Canary Islands, Cape Verde, Madeira, and western Morocco and is the natural symbol of the island of Tenerife.
