    Comments: An interesting form of Dracaena that will branch out and grow more like a shrub. The speckled pattern often resembles a galaxy or night sky. Flowers more often than other Dracaenas and will produce small-medium sized orange fruit after flowering. The flowers will add some interest but it is mainly grown for foliage. The fruit, as well as the rest of the plant is moderately poisonous.
