Dracaena – a decorative foliage plant that exists in many forms.  Slow growing, it tolerates low to moderate light levels and low humidity.  Grows in standard potting soil, keep soil moist.

This variety, D. marginata, is treasured for its long, narrow foliage.  Leaves are either variegated with pink edges or all green.  The trunk is a woody stalk that grows upright with the foliage at the top. D. marginata can be anywhere from two feet to twenty feet tall.

The unique candelabra plants have had their stems weighted down during the earlier stages of growth which has encouraged the trunk to curve and bend.
