Araucaria heterophylla definitely looks like a pine tree at first glance but, is actually a tropical plant native to Norfolk Island, just off the east coast of Australia - hence its common name. Although it looks like a pine (making it a great addition to Scandi interior styles), it's a very different species of evergreen conifer that prefers warm temperatures, making it a great Christmas tree alternative that can stay inside year-round.

Full of fractal fan-like foliage this architectural Araucaria is also known as Star Pine and Triangle Tree and closely resembles a mini monkey-puzzle tree (also an Araucariaceae family relative). With its widely spaced branches and symmetrical, triangular outline, the Norfolk Island Pine is a great houseplant - not just for Christmas.

Horty Hints

Ain't no pine! The Norfolk Island Pine is not a true pine and needs very different care from its European look-a-likes.

Happy when hot and humid! Araucaria heterophylla prefers a wet, warm and bright environment to thrive, so mist and keep away from drafts.

In the spotlight! The Star Pine loves brightly-lit spaces. A spot with plenty of indirect light is ideal.
