Pleomele Song of India
Pleomeles are natives of Madagascar, Mauritius and Southern India, where they are widely used as interior plants. The Indian connection explains one common name, but the derivation of “Song of Jamaica” is rather more obscure. It probably relates to the plant’s link with Dracaenas, some of which are native to Central America. According to many botanists the plant is wrongly named and should be included in the genus Dracaena. However this point is not universally accepted and Pleomele is still the preferred name in many countries, including its native India.
