A stunning foliage plant which is an evergreen shrub. Its deep green leaves are glossy and reflective, and stiff and firm with thorny edges. This variety of pandanus makes good boundary plants as their thorny leaves resist animal intrusions besides being drought resistant and very easy to maintain. Offshoots of this plant will continuously grow in the axils of lower leaves and they can be planted and propagated. This plant will thrive oudoors and needs strong, direct sunlight for best results.
