The Dracaena Marginata, better known to houseplant owners as the Madagascar Dragon Tree, is most notable for its rising stem and sword-like foliage. Its bright green leaves with thick red edges grow out from the top of the plant, arcing out in all directions. Its stem is long and thick, giving it the appearance of a tree and serving as the basis for its common nickname.
As the name implies, this plant is native to Madagascar. Its tropical heritage is reflected in its powerful durability, being capable of withstanding neglect and still growing as effectively as ever. It is the perfect houseplant for people of all skill levels, offering something for everyone to enjoy while avoiding the pitfalls of a more difficult plant.
Beauty and ease of care aside, the Dragon Tree is also popular as an effective air purifier. It is part of a select group of plants that has been added to NASA’s list of air purifiers, scrubbing your home of toxicants and providing you with a purer living space.
According to the ASPCA, the Dragon Tree is found to be toxic to animals. Its thin leaves are a prime target for animals to chew on, so make sure that you place your plant somewhere that is inaccessible to pets.
