Default Dracaena tamaranae

Some years ago there was found in a deep little valley on Gran Canaria a new Dracacea species few plants only( see "Plantas succulentas de las Islas Canarias", Joel Lodé). In the meantime the Jardin Canario has propaged plants. Last saturday I visited the Botanical garden in Tafira, south of Las Palmas in large, beautiful, green valley, a succulent garden and with endemic plants of the Canary Islands. The garden has a collection of dragon trees too. For the first time I have seen Dracaena tamaranae
with fruits, but a fence around the Drago !!
Pics :
D.cinnabari, D. drago
D. ellenbeckiane, D. marginata
D. reflexa, D.tamaranae with fruits

Today I have visited the habitat of this Drago in the mountain of
Gran Canaria, very difficult to find the places in the rocks.
There are no more plants of about 70 on the island and only 13 old
plants ( Cabildo de Gran Canaria, 1.7.16).
This is the rares plant from the Canary Islands.
