Common name : Norfolk Island Pine

Scientific name : Araucaria heterophylla

Family : Araucariaceae

Native land : Norfolk Island, 1,000 km off the east coast of Australia

It is an evergreen, coniferous tree. It looks like a pine with horizontal needle-like branches, but it is not part of the pine genus. It is one of the most familiar tree silhouettes in the world. The dark green leaves (needles) are awl-shaped, covering all sides of the branches, changing their shapes slightly in the upper branches as the tree ages. The bark is grey and rough. It is also popular as a Christmas tree, or as an exotic houseplant of ancient lineage that survives with little watering.
