Dracaena draco

Its name 'Dragon Tree' comes from the Greek word "drakon" ("dragon"). Often also called 'Dragon's Blood Tree' for its characteristic resin that takes on a reddish color when exposed to air. It is a magnificent slow growing perennial plant, to which it takes up to 10 years to reach a meter in height. After 30 years of life, its solitary silver-gray trunk begins to bloom, forming showy panicles with yellow-green flowers and, only after the first flowering, it begins to branch in a bifurcated way until it takes on the particular umbrella shape. D. draco in nature can reach up to 20 m in height, when cultivated it usually reaches 12-15 m. It is an ornamental plant, often used to decorate gardens, green areas and parks.
