Reputedly one of the world's oldest plants, these amazing evergreen subtropical tree-like plants in the genus Dracaena, bear just a few branches bearing linear to lance-shaped leaves, often crowded towards the tips, and on mature plants small greenish-white flowers are followed by attractive clusters of orange or red berries. When the bark is damaged it exudes thick, red, blood-like sap, hence one of its common names! Making statuesque specimens in warmer countries, these are also superb pot plants elsewhere. It is a native of the Canary Islands, Cape Verde, Madeira, and locally in western Morocco, and introduced to the Azores.
These seeds have already been thoroughly cleaned and should be sown into a well-drained, sandy compost at any time of the year, and covered thinly with sand or grit and kept moist. Keep at between 20-25 degrees C. Seeds sometimes germinate within 4 to 6 weeks although some may take very much longer so please be patient. Plant out in the open ground in warmer countries or in a large container elsewhere.
