Dracaena marginata, commonly called red-edge dracaena, is an evergreen tree with stiff, ribbon-like red-margined green leaves and slim, curving stalks for trunks. It is a striking plant that resembles a small palm tree with long textured stems that curve and twist with tufts of long, narrow olive leaves edged in red. It gets it shape by losing the lower leaves, exposing the textured stems.
