Growing Dracaena marginata outside
I planted a small (~10 inch) Dracaena marginata next to our patio. Now I'm thinking of replacing it with a MUCH more mature plant in a pot. The little baby I planted looks ridiculous (because it is so small).
I know Dracaena should be planted away from wind-prone areas, but I can tie it to the patio post it will be planted next to when a strong wind is predicted. We do have two of them in different spots in the yard but they were mature plants when we planted them. I'm wondering how long it will take this baby to get to a reasonable size.
Did anyone start a Dracaena from a tiny plant in the garden? Or should I just go and get a large one and be done with it? Summer is coming (it's spring already anyway, right???) and I want that spot a little more filled in than this tiny baby provides.
