An indoor favourite Dracaena comes in many forms, unified by an impressive fan of lush pointy leaves, but it’s history is anything but suburban. Dracaena translates to ‘Dragon tree’ and the name comes from a legends of Hercules. For his 11th labour, Hercules had to bring back three golden apples from the garden of the Hespérides, guarded by Landon, the hundred-headed dragon. Hercules killed Landon and where his blood penetrated the earth ‘dragon’ trees began to grow. Larger varieties ‘bleed’ bright red dragons blood when the trunk is cut. The impressive spray of leaves are the ‘100 heads’. Pretty cool.
The Dragon Plant is part of the Suburban Jungle collection, a botanical explosion of colour, pattern, texture and style, finally a room full of house plants with no chance of dying.
