What’s the Difference Between a Draceana Reflexa Song of India and a Dracaena Reflexa Song of Jamaica?

Hi Judy, I am so confused! Can you tell me the difference between a Dracaena reflexa Song of India and a Dracaena reflexa Song of Jamaica?

Hi Sophie,

It’s easy to be confused! The regular Dracaena Reflexa, or Pleomele, has dark green leaves. The Dracaena Reflexa, Song of India, has yellow stripes on the leaves, while the Dracaena Reflexa, Song of Jamaica, has off white stripes on the leaves. All varieties of Dracaena Reflexa¬† plants have short, narrow, pointed leaves that are spirally arranged on the stem and tufted at the ends of branches.
