Pandanus veitchii ‘Variegata’, unlike the fragrant Pandan Leaf

Pandanus veitchii ‘Variegata’ (Variegated Dwarf Pandanus, Variegated Veitch’s Screw Pine)

Isn’t she gorgeous? A spineless dwarf variegated beauty!

We spotted this Variegated Dwarf Pandanus at a garden nursery in our neighbourhood in late December 2015.

Believe me when I say that we were indeed smitten by its stunning yellow-green foliage variegation.

A must-have plant to be added to our garden collection.

Unfortunately though, there were several plants, about 45 cm tall in a large container and cost RM45. That was way beyond our garden budget.

Thus, I pleaded with the owner of the nursery to dig out a single plant and charge me accordingly. So very happy that he ordered one of his nursery helper to spade out one plant as requested and charged us only RM10. It’ll be just great in a container.

This plant is unlike the fragrant Pandanus amaryllifolius (Pandan Leaf) that is popularly used for culinary purpose.
