Dragon Tree - DRACAENA DRACO -
bag of 4 seeds
The dragon tree of the Canaries (Dracaena draco), or common dragon tree, is a tree plant of the family Dracaenaceae or Ruscaceae. It looks like a big umbrella.
The Canary Island dragon tree has a palm port with dense and strange foliage resting on several trunks.
At flowering appears in the middle of each tuft a stem bearing numerous small greenish flowers in clusters.
The species has an exceptional longevity (5000 years).
The resin that flows from the wounds takes on a reddish color, which earned it the name of the dragon's blood. The tree was credited with magical properties and its resin with therapeutic properties. The Romans used it as a colorant and traded it. In Morocco, there are ancient cave drawings made with the resin of the dragon tree.
