Dracaena reflexa is a popular ornamental plant, both in the landscape and the home. It can be enjoyed as a specimen plant, accent, or pruned to create a border. Several cultivars have been selected, particularly variegated clones with cream and yellow-green margins.

It prefers bright, filtered light, without direct sun exposure.

Dracaena reflexa var. angustifolia is also known as D. marginata, a name found in horticulture.

With the variety of forms and cultivars, there are also some hybrid crosses that can arise as well.
