These were rather light-skinned, and some quite good-looking, and all wore girdles of dracaena leaves.
In connexion with the various designs such fine plants as Agave americana, dracaena indivisa are often used as centre-pieces.
The said girdle is made of the ti leaves (dracaena terminalis).
A large number of the garden species of dracaena are varieties of Cordyline terminalis.
dracaena and the allied genus Cordyline occur in the warmer regions of the Old World.
The leaf of the ti (dracaena terminalis) was carried as a banner wherever the troops went.
