Why We Love It

Wowsers, what a stunner. Talk about striking yellow and green leaves. Dracaena ‘Lemon Lime’ looks fab, and to look after it is ‘easy peasy, lemon squeezy’ (sorry, couldn’t resist).

'Lemon Lime' is a dramatic-looking houseplant, great to have as a focal point in your home or office.

The glossy leaves look practically varnished, and the colours are vibrant, fresh, and dare we say it… zesty.

It's not so tough to look after either; just keep the soil moist to the touch and give it a misting of water every day in the summer months.

Let it rest over winter by not watering it. And you can have a rest too.

Dracaena Facts

Beware the dragon…

The botanical name Dracaena comes from the Greek word drakaina, which means female dragon. This is why you may hear these plants called Dragon Plants.

Beware the dragon #2…

Dragon’s blood is a bright red resin made from Dracaena plants. It was used for many centuries by the Greeks and Romans as a dye, painting pigment and medicine. Now it is mainly used for varnishing violins.

  • Current height: 90 cm, current spread: 40 cm
  • You won’t need to 'plant' this houseplant. Leave it in its nursery pot, and put the whole thing into a decorative pot to create "the look"
  • It likes bright, indirect light, if there’s not enough light, it will lose its vibrant colour
  • Dracaena doesn't like being cold (who does!?), and will shut up shop if the temperature falls to less than 12C
  • Pets and kids? These plants are toxic if ingested, so take care
