Commonly called Red-Edge Dracaena or Madagascar Dragon Tree, this plant can grow to 15 feet in height, supported by a long, slender truck or "cane". Its foliage is a near vertical to horizontal mass of narrow pointed green leaves with red to purple stripes along the outer edge. As new leaves emerge from the top, the mature leaves on the bottom drop away.

The canes can be grown straight to produce a tall plant with a compact "footprint" or be trained to curve, creating unique character plants. Several canes are generally planted in each pot, often of varying lengths to produce a “fuller” specimen.
