Plant Bio

Dracaena zeylanica

Closely related to common Snake Plant (Dracaena trifasciata, also known as Sansevieria trifasciata), this species looks similar with its stiff, sword-like green-mottled leaves. It’s often used as a houseplant, as well as a component in planters on shaded decks and patios.

Wondering where the name comes from? Zeylanica means “from Ceylon,” the former name of Sri Lanka.
