Looking very much like a palm tree in miniature, Dracaena marginata (also known as the Madagascar dragon tree) is an evergreen shrub with a crown of long, sword-shaped, dark green leaves, finely edged with reddish-brown. A superb, low-maintenance houseplant that has few problems.
Holder of the presigious RHS Award of Garden Merit, so you can be sure that it is a tried and tested winner, Dracaena is an easy-to-grow indoor plant which thrives on little care - a super choice for those of us new to growing houseplants!
Dragon trees need a bright position which makes them an ideal candidate for a light windowsill out of direct sunlight and away from artificial heat sources such as radiators. They're slow growing too, taking around 10 years to get to 5ft, so won't overtake your home.
As well as being super-easy to grow, Dracaena is well known for helping keep the air in your home clean as it filters out pollutants keeping it fresh and clean - according to NASA, this plant can remove formaldehyde, xylene, and toluene, found in furniture, fireplace smoke, and common household products.
Supplied as a double-stem plant (30/15cm) in a 17cm pot.
As with all houseplants, keep away from children and pets and take care when handling.
Please Note: Decorative pot in images is for display purposes only and is not supplied.
