variegation is mediopictate (yellow center, green edges) and plant is very similar in shape and size to Dracaena fragrans lemon Lime, only with the opposite variegation. Variegation also tends to be less consistently bold with this cultivar, sometimes showing green thin stripes down center yellow stripe. Differs from D fragrans Gold Star in leaves are much larger, smooth, and green margins are thick (thin in Gold star).

This is a new cultivar introduced in January 09. It is campact in habit with dark green and chargreuse variegated leaves that have a graceful downward arch. It has excellent qualities for interiorscapes. Since it is patented, I have not included propagation methods.
