The Q&A Archives: What is it?

Question: I bought a great plant (tropical) the other day but it drives me crazy that there are so few tags on the plants I buy at Home Depot, especially the ones inside. I have a picture of it but wasn't able to find an email address to send it to. The plant is about 24

Answer: If you purchased the plant inside, it is tropical and will make a great houseplant or a plant for shade in an area that remains above freezing during the winter time. If the leaves are long and narrow, I suspect it is a dracaena. If you can post your picture on a website such as Flickr or Picasa or and send us the web address we can check it out and identify it for you.
