The Dragon Tree “Golden Coast”, known as Dracaena fragrans or Corn Plant, is a tall houseplant that is easy to care for. Dracaena fragrans is a shrub with leaves forming as rosettes on stems and at the tip of the plant. It has very long sword-shaped leaves. Dracaena fragrans prefers quite dry conditions, so watering intervals can be quite long.
The Dragon Tree variety “Gold Coast” has attractively variegated foliage with yellow stripes along the outer edges of the leaves (the reverse of the pattern of variegation found on the variety “Cintho”). In the wild, they can grow up to 3m, in height, and are sometimes used for hedging. As houseplants, they are typically much smaller. Dracaena fragrans is notable for its highly scented flowers (hence ‘fragrans’, meaning fragrant), and you may be lucky to get flowers on yours. They’re not especially attractive, but have a delightful smell.
