Soaring Through the World

A Photo a Day: My Daily Sustenance, Day 213

At left is my Norfolk pine; it resides in my bedroom now.  Below is a photo from 2011 of the same tree. I tried to put the photos side by side so that it would be easier for comparison of growth.  I was afraid that the pine's being in a western window would stunt its growth, but it hasn't!
Shiny green needles,
upward the branches do soar,
lovely Norfolk pine.

so pretty! Can it also be planted outside?

No, I just checked on-line for specifics. It cannot tolerate temperature below 50 degrees F. I've had it for at least 10 years.

There are a lot of them in New Zealand (they were originally so named because they are native to Norfolk Island, of course) and they grow to a huge height - 60+ metres! Hopefully yours will not raise your roof!

GB, when it hits the ceiling, I'll have to give it a good trim, won't I? So, Norfolk Island is warm all the time?
