Indian Mast Tree

Polyalthia longifolia var. pendula

Family: Annonaceae


This is one of the few tropical trees with a naturally very narrow habit of growth. It's about the closest tropical equivalent to the Mediterraneran's pencil pine, although mast trees tend not to grow as tight and symmetrical. The foliage has a more "shaggy" look, as well.

Indian Mast tree featured in the 02-11-2018 edition of Get Results Gardening, a newsletter-style, email magazine for Australia with an emphasis on subtropical South East Queensland. It covers plants which, like Polyalthia longifolia, are suitable for the region, plus lots of other gardening technique, design ideas and trends.
