Blooming surprise

I have a houseplant which has been part of the furniture for years now. My Dracaena has been doing little aside from growing quietly taller – until now. It’s produced a magnificent, unexpected flower stem packed with sweet-smelling blossom and oozing with nectar. Click here to see the plant in its full glory.

It can’t expect any pollination action at the beginning of January, so looks likely to be very short-lived. But now it has been captured for posterity…

    I hope your Dracaena isn’t like my bamboo; it grew quietly for years then suddenly burst into flower – and died! Apparently that’s what they do, a swan song I guess.
