From legends past, Dracaena's name derivation was from Dracaena draco, meaning 'female dragon' in Greek. Supposedly a dragon fight left its blood on the earth, which was absorbed and drawn up into the native tree in the area, producing a bloodish red sap. The Romans used the sap to color marble in ages past, and Italians applied it as a stain to wood instruments to intensify the tone quality.
