The Yellow Dragon Fruit will transport you to a magical tropical fairyland where you will believe that dragons are real once you see the fantastic blooms this cactus produces. These nocturnal fragrant blossoms are huge and look stunning as their soft white petals fan out in the moonlight. To add to the dreamy effect, these flowers fill the air with a sweet fragrant scent.

You'll want to sit and study your Yellow Dragon Fruit. Its thick, angular vines reach and crawl from the top of a tall trunk. You can keep yours in a hanging container to let the branches overflow and reach downward.

To keep your Yellow Dragon Fruit happy, you don't need to be a plant whisperer. You will need to support your Yellow Dragon Fruit along its trunk and add support for its vines, though. This South American native loves to grow in full sun or partial shade. And this drought-tolerant beauty performs best in low moisture soil that drains quickly.

As a statement piece, you'll want to plant your Yellow Dragon Fruit as a specimen in your front yard. It also does well as a hanging plant or next to a fence that it can climb, climb, climb.
