    This member of the Dracaenaceae family was described by Georges Guerrard Samuel Perrottet in 1825. It is found in Northern Yemen and Oman. It grow on rocky slopes in a well drained soil with little to some water and lots of sun. The stem can grow to 35 centimetres in diameter - or more. In average, the small trees grow up to three or five meters, but given the right conditions, it should reach twelve meters.

Within three years, I have grown some to well over one meter, 15 centimetres in diameter at the base.
