In ancient Greek mythology, in one of the tales of Hercules, he goes to slay Landon, the hundred-headed dragon in order to retrieve three of the golden Apples of Hesperedies. When the dragon is killed, Dragon Trees sprang up from Landon's blood, and as the blood flowed and spread, the trees continued to grow.
