Dracaena marginata is a shrub or small tree native to Madagascar. It can reach 12' in height, is drought tolerant and requires minimal care, a very easy plant to grow. It does best in bright light and requires a well draining potting medium. It can be pruned, and the cut pieces can be rooted for additional plants. An air purifying plant, the D. marginata helps removes toxins from the air.
