The catalog lists Sundance Dracaena in 1, 3, and 5 gallon containers. This is a focal plant with an upright habit to 25 ft. tall. It is a palm-like, sub-tropical tree that grows erect until with some age it will fork to produce more heads. The very green swordlike strap leaves have a very thin stripe of pink down the midrib and along the leaf's base. It can reach 20 - 25 feet tall and spreads about 12 feet. It is not noted for the flowers but creamy white panicles will form on older trees, and later will produce berries. 'Sundance' flourishes in full sun to light shade and prefers good drainage. It is hardy to zones 9-10 : 0? F. Fragrant white flowers bloom on clusters on the mature plant in late spring. Drought tolerant.
