Pandanus ultilis - Screw Pine, Madagascan Screw Pine


Pandanus ultilis - Screw Pine, Madagascan Screw Pine  (Pandanus ultilis - Screw Pine, Madagascan Screw Pine)

Screw Pine is generally grown very close to the coast. Quail Botanical Gardens is located only a mile from the beach. It's a very drought tolerant plant which is very picturesque...however, it's not too widely grown in the common landscape here because of the horrible spines on the leaves (they're like razor blades). Photo taken Nov. 2, 2010.

Sounds like it would make a great privacy hedge/fence.

Yes, when it's young...but, it does eventually become a tree.
