Dracaena Marginata

D. marginata
Madagascar Dragon Tree

Dracaena marginata plants can be used as table plants but they are especially impressive as tall trees with multiple canes and hundreds of long thin green leaves trimmed in dark red. The canes of  dracaena marginata are often thick, twisted, and woody, making them a desirable and expensive “specimen” plant.  Dracaena marginatas, or Madagascar Dragon Tree plants as they are sometimes called, are easy-care durable indoor plant wells suited for offices and homes. NASA lists a dracaena marginata as an excellent plant for removing harmful chemicals from the air.

Dracaena marginata plants are considered by some to be slightly poisonous, especially to dogs and cats. Read more about common houseplants that are poisonous in Don’t Feed Me To Your Cat! A Guide to Poisonous Houseplants
