The Dragon Blood Tree (Dracaena cinnabari): Native to the island of   Socotra in the Indian Ocean, this evergreen is named for its dark red resin, 'Dragon's Blood'. The shape of the tree is an adaptation for survival in arid conditions with low amounts of soil. The thick leaves of the large, packed crown provides shade, reduces evaporation and aids in the survival of seedlings which grow beneath the adult tree. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dracaena_cinnabari Photo by Boris Khvostichenko…

Socotra Island, located off the southeast coast of Yemen, is known for its lush biodiversity—and strange plant life. Dracaena cinnabari—more commonly known as the dragon’s blood tree—is the island’s iconic species, with its upturned branches perfectly adapted to capturing moisture..

Marooned in the Indian Ocean, this isolated archipelago of four islands claims hundreds of unique species and is well known for its alien landscape. If you think the shape of this Dracaena cinnabari tree is weird, wait until you find out that its name translates to “dragon’s blood tree” thanks to its red sap, which is traditionally used as a dye.

Island of Socotra, Yemen resembles someplace you’d expect to see aliens living in.  One of a handful of strange looking plants, the Dragon’s Blood Tree looks like broccoli and it’s resin is dark red.
