The silhouette of the Norfolk Island may resemble a holiday tree, but it delights long after the holidays are over, with soft foliage, vibrant greenery and easy growth that’s perfect for any landscape. Despite its name, the Norfolk Island Pine is not a true pine tree but rather part of a more ancient lineage of cone-bearing trees. It does has air-purifying qualities, making it ideal for indoor landscapes and is salt tolerant for those coastal properties.
