Description

A common name of screw pine comes from the spirally arranged leaves (screw-like spiral around the stem) and the pineapple like fruit which also resembles a large pine cone.

‘Veitchii’ (synonymous with and sometimes called Pandanus veitchii) is a variegated cultivar that features spiny, pale green leaves with striking white margins. Some experts maintain that Pandanus veitchii is a species native to Madagascar. Other experts list this plant as a cultivar of Pandanus tectorius.

It grows in average, medium moisture, well-drained soils in full sun to part shade. It likes warm, humid conditions. Garden sites that receive full, all-day sun to partial afternoon shade make the best planting spots for pandans. Moist soil that retains moisture without becoming soggy results in the healthiest growth, although a pandan can tolerate some drought stress once it’s established.
