Dragon Tree 'Compact Janet Craig'
Botanical Name: Dracaena
Common Name: Dragon Tree
Dracaena or dragon trees are part of the Asparagus family known as "Asparagaceae"! These plants are native to Africa and South America and were cultivated as houseplants for their unique look! They have also been known to purify the air, making them a great addition to any home that likes fresh air!
Dragon trees have long narrow leaves, sometimes being described as sword-like! When looking at the Dragon Tree itself, the leaves are arranged in such a way that they resemble a crown! And the variety and variations of colors on Dragon trees are amazing! They come in all kinds of shades of green, red, pink, white, and yellow. Dragon trees can also produce blooms that turn into bundles of berries. Not much is found on how edible these berries are, but the leaves and stems are toxic to animals and humans.
