Screw Pine Overview
Native throughout S.E. Asia and the Pacific Islands, this evergreen, upright tree forms whorls of robust branches with linear, leathery blue-green leaves. These have spines along the margins. Flowers are small, simple and petalless, and either male or female, the sexes being produced on different plants. Male flowers are often on branched spikes, while female flowers are in short, cone-like heads (which develop into a pineapple-like fruit when fertilised). Screw pines form thick stilt roots, and make great specimen plants in greenhouses or even as houseplants.
