Dragon trees are incredible, and although they may look like trees, they are not real trees at all. Want to know more? Find out in the spotting of the day from the Canary Islands. The Dragon tree is not a real tree, it is actually much closer to asparagus. It is extremely slow-growing, taking 8 to 11 years to reach just 2 to 3 feet (1 metre), when it begins to flower. The flowering causes the stem to branch, resulting in a highly branched tree which can be aged according to the number of branches. The oldest individual is thought to be more than 650 years old."
