Dracaena Draco - Strange Dragon Tree Palm
A native to the Canary Islands, this very unusual palm like tree has long lance shaped dark green leaves and grows to around 8m high when mature, but is slow growing and can take 10 years to reach a size of 1.5m.
Also known as the Dragon Tree as its has a red sap which is meant to resemble dragons blood! As the leaves die back and fall off a scaly pattern is also left on the branch.
This tree doesn't produce rings so it is aged by the number of branching. The oldest specimen is believed to be around 650 years old.
