The Norfolk Island Pine isn't actually a pine at all. Rather, this ancient conifer is a member of the Araucaria genus, found endemic on the tiny Norfolk Island in the Pacific Ocean. Norfolk Island Pines make great houseplants, and – though slow-growing – can eventually grow into impressive tree-sized specimens. We love its soft foliage, symmetrical growth habit and festive appearance. Though native to the tropics, the Norfolk Island Pine is just about the best way we've found to bring the seasonal charm of a coniferous forest indoors for the holidays.
