I bought one for Missy's garden a few years back and now have a number of clumps. It is hardy, fast growing, attractive and grows readily from cuttings.
Although they flower each Summer in the tropics, ours (in S.E. Qld) had never flowered - until now. I was delighted when I walked outside a few days ago and smelt the familiar fragrance. Went looking and sure enough, my happy plants were flowering. What a bonus!
Dracaena fragrans 'Massangeana' is an essential in any tropical garden.
The flowers only last a couple of days but up close are as beautiful as their perfume.
They grow as tall as a small tree in the garden so the dead blooms will have to fall naturally. I can't reach them.
Happy plants are a common indoor plant. I have one in my office at work which survives in air-con and flourescent lighting with a weekly water and an occasional wipe to remove the dust. It doesn't seem quite as happy as the ones in my garden though.
