Answer: Dragon's Blood Tree is Dracaena draco. It is a palm-like evergreen slowly growing to 30 feet. Outdoors it needs protection from afternoon sunshine in Phoenix. Indoors it will adapt to low or moderate light levels. It performs best when grown in moist, fertile, organically rich, well-drained soils.
The name comes from the red sap of this tree that was sold as 'Dragon's Blood' and was said to be used by the ancient Egyptian during the embalming process.
I've seen these plants in the greenhouse or houseplant section of nurseries and also at Home Depot. I'll bet you'll find them there, too. Enjoy!
