Three steroidal glycosides were isolated from the bark of Dracaena fragrans (L.) Ker Gawl. Yellow Coast , and a fourth from the roots and the leaves. Their structures were characterized on the basis of extensive 1D and 2D NMR experiments and mass spectrometry, and by comparison with NMR data of the literature. These saponins have the spirostane-Type skeleton and are reported in this species for the first time.
