Dracaena Plants
Q.

I would like to know what tree/shrub this is

Zone Almeria, Spain - coastal | PearlK added on April 29, 2015 | Answered

The tree is about 1.5 meters high and, at present, there are no leaves, but leaves are starting to shoot from the tips of the branches. As I find the tree at present rather plain, could I grow a creeper to disguise it during winter? (I have just moved into this apartment on a long "let")

It looks like it is a type of dragon tree:

I do not recommend using vines to disguise the tree. The following article explains why:
