Dracaena Draco

or Dragon Tree, a native of the Canary Islands. Helen gave me a smallish specimen in a large pot for my birthday a couple of years ago and it has survived my haphazard care. In fact it has almost doubled in size.

Today I noticed a dead leaf so decided to do some tidying. There were quite a few dead fronds.

The dead fronds have the most fabulous colouring and textures on the ends that were attached to the stem.

They were on their way to the compost, but I am now thinking coiled basket. I am sure I have some fine red-orange coloured cord somewhere . . . .
