is a variegated form of a species native to tropical Africa. It is a
shrubby sparsely branched plant that can reach 50 ft (15 m) or more
in the wild but seldom reaches anywhere near this height in
cultivation. Its clusters of small cream flowers are very fragrant
and are followed by orange-red berries. This form is marked by a
central stripe of yellow on each leaf.
Cultivation: Outdoors, dracaenas need warm-temperate to subtropical
conditions, full sun or part-shade and well-drained soil. Cut leggy
plants back to almost soil level in spring.
Propagate from seed or by air-layering in spring or from cuttings in
summer. Watch out for mealybugs.
