WHOLESALE DRACAENA MARGINATA NURSERIES
Also known as the ‘Red Edged Dragon Tree’ Dracaena marginata is a very similar plant to D.draco with one very important difference. The foliage has red edges.
The foliage is stiff and spiky in appearance and these are one of the easiest of all tropical looking plants to grow in cooler climates.
It is a plant that looks great in the evening and in the morning when the foliage is backlit and the red edges of the green foliage are more prominent.
Plant it in a position where it will contrast against the light or against a light coloured wall.
Care and Pruning
Dracaena Draco is very low maintenance plant, it requires little extra water once established, and needs fertiliser only once a year in most cases.
The plant will flower and after flowering they tend to branch. Flowers are insignificant although they are followed by prominent orange to red berries. Dracaena Draco does not drop much foliage which is an advantage.
