Did you know: The name dracaena comes from a Greek word meaning female dragon due to a red gum-like resin in the stems of dracaena that was likened to dragon blood. Centuries ago, this resin was used for toothpaste, dyes, and medicines. Today, it is still used for varnish and photoengraving. Commonly referred to as “Spikes”. This ornamental grass was formerly a house plant, but has become widely used as an annual in containers and in landscaping mixed with colorful bedding plants. It may be moved indoors during the Winter months and put back out in the Spring. It has distinctively long spiky green foliage that makes a fan of green as it grows. Spikes will be approximately 12-18” when delivered to you but may grow up to 3-6’ tall. Not to worry, it takes years to reach those heights! They are fantastic in containers behind glorious mounds of color or as a center, surrounded by color. Whatever your choice, this plant is very easy to please.
