Help me ID 3 Dracaena's please

Marcel_NLFebruary 22, 2014

Hello,

I just found 3 very cheap Dracaena's (I think) in a supermarket, but I am having some trouble ID'ing them, maybe you can help.

First one I think is a D. Marginata (is it Bicolor?)

D. Fragrans ?? (Green Stripe ??)

Yes, #1 looks like D. marginata tricolor.
#2 looks like D. sanderiana of some type.
#3, looks like 'Lemon surprise.'

Good lookin' plants.

EA has all 3 of these. Did they come from there?

Thank you purpleinopp!

Re. #3 Lemon surpise? Interesting, I thought because mine doesn't have the thin white stripes it more resembled D. reflexa (at least in my book of houseplants it did:). But I wasn't sure.

They didn't come from EA, but from a German supermarket ('Real'). I live in the Netherlands less than a mile from the german border.

Thanks for the help!

Is it possible that #3 is also some cultivar of D. sanderiana? Maybe it's just me, but #2 and #3 look almost identical (the slimness of the leaves and their length, not to mention the growth habit of the leaves) aside from color.

Thanks all!
Yes #2 and #3 look almost identical aside from color. It's very difficult for me to compare pictures of D. sanderiana with D. Lemon lime in a browser. Especially since many seem to be mislabeled. At least I know my initial assumption with #3 (D. reflexa) was wrong.

Looking from the side, I'm not sure about #3, which is on the left in this last pic? It doesn't look like one of the 'lemons' with the angle of the leaves and spacing of them on the trunk.

Yes #3 is on the left. #2 and #3 (left and center) are very very similar except for the colors (which show better in the individual pics). I am leaning towards your original suggestion Lemon surprise or Lucky bamboo from the google images comparison.

1 is marginata
2 is warneckii
3 is warneckii lemon lime. Leaf color is not right for reflexa.
