Dracaena draco is a slow-growing strong tree that belongs to the Asparagaceae family and, in its natural environment, grows in the subtropics and tropics of the African continent. The tree belongs to ornamental plants and is a green-leaved type of Dracaena. Interestingly, the famous Swedish botanist Carl Linnaeus mistakenly placed Dracaena draco in the genus Asparagus, but after some time, he realized the mistake and corrected everything.
Dracaena draco is easily identified by its broad crowns, which are topped by thin, pointed gray-green leaves that grow up to 60 cm (1.9 ft) long and up to 4 cm (1.5 in) wide.
The flowers are small, grow in bunches, and begin to bloom after the tree is at least 8 years old. Dracaena blooms in summer, once every 14-17 years, and after the first flowering, the trunk begins to grow with a silver-gray color and branches in its upper part. In the trunk, there is a special juice of a sticky consistency that turns red in the open air.
The fruits are small in size, have an orange color, are edible, and look like cherries.
