Next to the palms the dracaenas are most useful and effective. On mantels, sideboards or tables perfect specimens of D. terminalis tricta, D. amabilis, or any of the beautiful hybrids, can't be equaled. And for situations wanting larger plants well-grown specimens of D. Nova-Caledonica, D. fragrans and D. Lindenii are superb, and they should always be so situated that the entire plant can be seen. D. indivisa is, of course, very common, but it is so hardy and tough that it is for many places one of the very best decorative plants we have. Dracaenas of the terminalis and fragrans type want no exposure to the cold, but they are easily packed and their leaves can be brought up and tied close to the stem with strips of tissue paper without doing any harm.
