Dragon’s Blood Tree Socotra Island, Yemen

The Dragon blood tree is arguably the most famous and distinctive plant of the 

island of Socotra. It has a unique and strange appearance, described as 

“upturned, densely -packed crown having the shape of an upside-down 

umbrella”. 

This evergreen species is named after its dark red resin, that is known as 

“dragon’s blood”.
