The name of this beautiful tree has mythical origins: for his 11th labour, Hercules had to bring back three golden apples from the garden of the Hespérides, which is guarded by Landon, the hundred-headed dragon. Hercules killed Landon and his blood flowed out over the land, which began to sprout ‘dragon’ trees. The tree exudes ‘dragon’s blood’ – a red sap – when cut. The trunks are long and slender and the leaves are prickly. The flowers are greenish-white, have a sweet smell and are followed by orange-brown berries which are a little smaller than a cherry, pointed and covered in a red, resinous substance, and taste sweet. Loves sun, drought tolerant. Only a few available at different sizes, please inquire first.
