DRAGON BLOOD TREE – MYSTICAL, MAGICAL AND BREATHTAKING! GREAT FOR BONSAI, POT CULTURE AND GARDEN GROWING! NEW SEEDS IN NOW!

Dragon Blood Tree – these are fast becoming extinct in their native homeland. They have an amazing structural form which amazes everyone that sees them. Although you might think them more closely related to a succulent, these are in fact from the Asparagus family!

They can grow to 25 feet tall and equally as broad though they are very slow growing and will take many years to reach that size and will stay smaller with trimming. And they do very nicely in pots.

Surely one of the most unusual trees on earth, they appear to be almost alien! The flowers are white and deeply perfumed. Dragon tree is one of the several sources for the aromatic, garnet-red resin known as “Dragon’s Blood.” This is an ancient herbal agent used to treat wounds. It makes a kind of stretchy, antiseptic bandage when dribbled on a cut or abrasion.

Dragon’s Blood is used for treating a load of other maladies including diarrhea, ulcerations and eczema and had recently been advertised in lotions and creams for the face.

They can be easily grown from seed and the steps to grow them are below:

Grow Notes
Prefers full sun in well-draining soil.

Scarify the large, roundish seeds by rubbing on medium grit sandpaper or by clipping gently and with great care with toenail clippers the outer layer only,

Sow
Plant 1.5cm – 2cm deep in Cactus mix. Pat down well and keep evenly moist but not too wet.

Keep them shaded but as warm as you can. Put them in pots only, don’t try to plant direct into the garden. Plant at least 3 seeds per pot. Bottom heat is helpful if you have a heat mat in Winter.  The best time to plant these is late Spring to late Summer.

Germination
Germination takes 30 to 90 days, and this seed demonstrates ongoing germination (it continues to grow inside the seed first before opening so do not discard your seeds).

Maturity
Keep plants in the pots and plant in the garden once established and in late spring through to the middle of summer. These live for many years and are slow growers.
