Regular price $5.99 Sale

The Norfolk Island Pine was discovered on Captain Cook's second voyage (1772-1775), and was subsequently introduced into cultivation in 1793. Captain Cook? That Captain Cook? It is now widely planted throughout the world in subtropical regions, often in coastal areas.

Commonly grown in pots and tubs as a decorative indoor plant, this luscious beauty loves to be shown off.  

It looks like a pine with horizontal needle-like branches, but it is not part of the pine genus. Go figure!
