Searching for Drago Trees on Tenerife

The legend goes that when Hercules went head to head with a dragon in the Garden of Hesperides (maybe not quite head to head as Hercules only had one whereas the dragon had 100) and came out victorious, from every drop of dragon blood spilled a drago tree grew.

The question is, as there would have been a lot of blood gushing across the Garden of Hesperides, subsequently resulting in many drago trees, why is there only one decent specimen left in the modern day Garden of Hesperides, i.e. Tenerife?
