Commonly known as the Canary Islands Dragon Tree, this is a small tree featuring long, sword like leaves. The dark green-grey leaves are borne as a cluster atop a thick and fleshy trunk. When the plant reaches about 10–15 years of age it begins to produce flowers. Fragrant, lily-like, white flowers are borne off flower spikes in summer and are followed by coral coloured berries. It typically grows to 5 m tall and 3 m wide, performing best when planted in full sun on a well-drained site. This hardy plant will tolerate drought, coastal environments, and moderate frost. The Canary Islands Dragon Tree is commonly grown as a specimen, maintained in a large planter, added to a mixed planting where space affords, or included in Mediterranean themed gardens.
