Answer: Dracaena draco, the Dragon Tree, grows slowly to about 20', and requires very little water. If you plant it at the edge of your lawn, rather than right in the center of the lawn, it won't have to struggle in a too-wet growing area. The roots of the tree will penetrate the lower layers of soil, but you should dig a hole at least twice the size of the root mass when you plant, just to give the tree a good start. After you loosen the soil, plant the tree at the same level it was growing in the container and backfill with the soil you removed from the hole, tamping it down to exclude pockets of air near the roots. Then water well.
