Plant Description:

Discover the elegance of the Norfolk Island Pine (Araucaria heterophylla), a tree celebrated for its resemblance to a classic Christmas tree. Despite its name, it is not a true pine but rather a relative of the monkey puzzle tree. Native to Norfolk Island in the South Pacific, this evergreen features a straight trunk and symmetrical branches adorned with short, inward-curving needles. Outdoors, it can reach towering heights of up to 200 feet, while indoor cultivation, including bonsai training, maintains a more manageable 3 to 8 feet. The Norfolk Pine's lush foliage makes it a popular choice for holiday decorations, and with proper care, it can thrive both indoors and outdoors.
