Dragons are mythical beasts and there is something of that about this plant, as it doesn’t look quite like anything else. It forms a rather interesting jagged clump with the deep maroon sharply pointed leaves with their pale-edged dark chevronned centres stealing the show. It sports clusters of white flowers in summer, too. Sun or semi-shade. Any reasonable soil. 18 in. 2 litre pot.

Can be rather good in a shady spot where it will lurk very effectively. Enjoys being pruned back to encourage new bushy growth.
