A truly epic architectural plant, you can find a collection of the dracena draco plant growing at the Sydney Royal Botanical Garden.
- Otherwise known as the dragon’s blood tree, the dracena draco is known for its incredible umbrella like shape, and its stunning upper foliage
- The dracena draco is native to the Canary Islands. In its natural habitat, you will be able to see them growing in some large groups
- The Sydney Royal Botanical Gardens has spent the last year growing a collection of dracena draco, grouping them with some beautiful African underplanting
- While you can grow them at home, a large dracena draco will put you back thousands of dollars. A smaller one on the other hand, will be a lot more practical for your own garden
