pandanus | by *omnia*
Back to group


the leaves of a pandanus are attached to the trunk in a spiral formation


it has a fibrous round fruit that looks a little like a pineapple (inedible, unless you are desperate) and aerial prop roots


there are many different varieties and it's native region includes Australia, South Pacific Islands and Hawaii. It's also called screwpine


more info


this wasn't an easy pic to take because the leaves are sharp, long and usually dirty - it took me nearly a year to come across a good one
