This is our dracaena (dragon) tree (with a few Photoshop filters applied, I just couldn't resist). • The name of this beautiful tree has mythical origins: for his 11th labour, Hercules had to bring back three golden apples from the garden of the Hespérides, which is guarded by Landon, the hundred-headed dragon. Hercules killed Landon and his blood flowed out over the land, which began to sprout ‘dragon’ trees. –Arkive • We have a few trees in our yard for about 8-10 years. This is the first time it's blooming, beautiful orange red berries.
