Product Information

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, Dracena 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.

Please note that the decorative pot is not included, see ‘as supplied’ photo.

Top Tips

Water the plant only when the top 1 inch of soil is dry and then water it thoroughly with tepid water  however, never allow the base of the pot to sit in a saucer of water.

Care Information

  • Feed the plant with a liquid houseplant fertilizer every two weeks in spring and summer.
  • Repot every two years into a pot one size larger until plants reach the desired height. After that, repot every three years into the same pot to refresh the soil.
  • Control your plant's height by cutting off the top when needed. The stem will look a bit bare for a while, but within a few weeks, new shoots will appear and the leaves will regrow.
