Dracaena Marginata is a multi-trunked tree originating from the Indian Ocean islands of Mauritius and Madagascar - but it’s more than happy as a UK houseplant. It has long, thin sculptural trunks with slender arching sword-like leaves in deep green with red edges. This spectacular sub-tropical is called the Madagascar Dragon Tree for its spiky foliage and fiery colours. In its native wilderness it will grow 6-8 metres tall with leg-sized trunks, but houseplants top around 2 metres.

Madagascar Dragon Tree is practically bomb-proof, very forgiving, and able to survive drought and neglect so it’s a good starter plant for newbie houseplant keepers. This eye-catching tropical beauty creates height in a group of houseplants or sits pretty as a focal point in the living room where it purifies the air and brings good fortune according to the ancient native tribes that planted it to mark sacred areas. Be careful around small children and pets as the foliage is mildly toxic if ingested.

How to Water And Feed Dracaena Marginata
Madagascar Dragon tree is able to cope with drought and is much better off being too dry than too wet. Check the compost weekly and when its soil is dry down to a knuckle, soak it in a sink or bucket of water for a few hours and let it drain. Regular misting isn’t needed, but a gentle hose down in the shower to remove dust is beneficial or if you have the central heating on a lot a weekly misting will improve its health. In the summer growing months, a monthly feed of diluted houseplant fertiliser will boost its health and may encourage tiny white flowers. Madagascar Dragon Tree will regularly drop its lower leaves to reveal its textured trunks but quickly grows more from the top. This is normal and nothing to worry about.

How Much Light Does Dracaena Marginata Need
Madagascar Dragon Tree grows best in bright indirect light but can deal with lower light too.

Where To Put Dracaena Marginata
Near a bright window is best, but ensure it’s not in direct sunlight as it’s too harsh and scorches the leaves. Madagascar Dragon Tree is particularly tolerant and will grow in most spots. It’s popular as a statement plant in the living room or conservatory, but its forgiving nature makes it a contender for every room of the house.
