Unknown plant name – Please Identify

Hi!! Can you please tell me the name of this plant and how to take care of it? Thanks!!

Hi Angie,

Long, thin, green leaves on Dracaena Marginata,
Dracaena Marginata Bush

Your plant is a Dracaena Marginata. Dracaena marginatas, or Madagascar dragon trees as they are sometimes called, are easy-care  durable, indoor plants well suited for offices and homes. NASA lists a dracaena marginata as an excellent plant for removing harmful chemicals from the air.

You can read all my care tips in the Popular Houseplant section of the website. The picture is of the tree version of the plant with upright leaves, but the care is the same.


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.
