Dragon Tree, Dracaena Seed
A beautiful indoor tree that does great in a container. Native to the Canary Islands this is one of our favorite indoor plants. Once mature this tree is a site to see with unusual shape and white flowers that are deeply perfumed. Dragon tree is one of the several sources for the aromatic, garnet-red resin known as “Dragon’s Blood.” The plant prefers mesic to dry conditions, well-drained soil, and sun to part shade.
Seed Germination: Plant at least 3 seeds per pot. Bottom heat is helpful. Takes 30-90 days to germinate.

Our Seed Promise
"Agriculture and seeds" provide the basis upon which our lives depend. We must protect this foundation as a safe and genetically stable source for future generations. For the benefit of all farmers, gardeners and consumers who want an alternative, we pledge that we do not knowingly buy or sell genetically engineered seeds or plants.
The mechanical transfer of genetic material outside of natural reproductive methods and between genera, families or kingdoms, poses great biological risks as well as economic, political, and cultural threats. We feel that genetically engineered varieties have been insufficiently tested prior to public release. More research and testing is necessary to further assess the potential risks of genetically engineered seeds. Further, we wish to support agricultural progress that leads to healthier soils, to genetically diverse agricultural ecosystems, and ultimately to healthy people and communities.
