Dracaena draco, commonly known as the Dragon tree or Dragon's blood tree, is a unique and iconic species native to the Canary Islands, Cape Verde, and Madeira. Here's a description of its key features:

Appearance: Dracaena draco is a slow-growing, evergreen tree with a distinctive, umbrella-shaped canopy. Mature specimens can reach heights of up to 12 meters (40 feet) or more. The trunk is stout, often swollen and gnarled, with a rough, grayish-brown bark that exfoliates in thin flakes to reveal a reddish underlayer.

Leaves: The leaves of the Dragon tree are long, narrow, and lanceolate, resembling sword blades. They are arranged in dense rosettes at the ends of the branches and have a leathery texture. The leaves are typically dark green, although they can sometimes have a bluish-gray hue.

Flowers: In mature specimens, Dracaena draco produces small, white to cream-colored flowers clustered on long panicles that emerge from the center of the rosettes. The flowers are fragrant and attract pollinators such as bees and butterflies.

Fruit: After flowering, the Dragon tree produces small, spherical berries that ripen to a reddish-orange color. These berries contain one or more seeds.

Resin: One of the most remarkable features of Dracaena draco is its resin, known as "dragon's blood." When the bark or leaves are wounded, they exude a deep red sap, which has been used for various purposes, including traditional medicine, dyeing, and varnish.

Habitat: Dracaena draco is well-adapted to arid and semi-arid environments, often growing in rocky coastal areas, cliffs, and hillsides. It is drought-tolerant and prefers well-drained, sandy soils.

Cultural significance: The Dragon tree has cultural and historical significance, with some specimens believed to be centuries old. It has been revered in folklore and mythology and is often associated with longevity, strength, and protection.
