Scientific Name: Dracaena Fragrans 'Burley'
Synonyms: Corn Plant, Sweet Scented Dracaena.

  • Broad strappy foliage
  • Attractive leaf patterning
  • Low maintenance houseplant
  • Will tolerate varied lighting conditions
  • Ideal for Beginners

The Dracaena Burley is an attractive broad-leafed shrub that grows in a spiralling arrangement. Each leaf is delicately patterned with a thick olive green band that runs down the centre of each leaf. Creating the perfect houseplant to add bold contrast and texture to your houseplant display.

This Dragon Tree Variety is easy to grow and tolerant of a wide variety of growing and lighting conditions, except hot direct sunlight. Making it the ideal beginner plant or for those who are on the go.

As a native to the African Tropics, the Dragon Tree Burley will appreciate average to high humidity and will develop dry leaf edges if the air is too dry. They will however appreciate drying out between each watering for best results. 

They're also relatively slow growers. Perfect for spaces that are limited or that will be overwhelmed quickly by a fast large growing houseplant. So, use it as the perfect compact tabletop display piece or shelf adornment. 

For more Plant options check out our Easy care Plants or Tabletop Collections.

Try these styling tips to allow your Dragon tree to shine.

Follow these instructions to keep your Dragon Tree healthy and happy.

Water: Water thoroughly, then allow to dry out between waterings - do not overwater. Water less often during the colder seasons. Never allow the plant to stand in water.
Light: Dragon Trees prefer bright, indirect light but will tolerate medium to low light levels as well. 
Humidity: Dragon Trees benefit greatly from regular misting - 2 -3 times a week.
Fertilize: Balanced feed once a month during the spring and summer months.

For detailed care check out our Dragon Tree Care Instructions.

Please note: Dracaena are toxic to both pets and humans when consumed.
