Description

The Dragoeiro, native to Cape Verde, the Canary Islands, Madeira, and Morocco is a rapidly disappearing species. The dragon-tree, as it is commonly called, is a symbol of resistance to drought. The tree is cultivated and used for medicinal purposes as well as a wood stain. The stain is collected from the reddish resin exposed when bark or leaves are removed.
