Dwarf Variegated Pandanus is without a doubt one of my favorite variegated plants. It is an easy-to-grow, tough, heat-tolerant source of gorgeous color. The long strap-like leaves have narrow stripes of green with broad gold centers. If you are familiar with pandanus, you probably know that their common name is Screw Pine, due to their spiraling leaf arrangement. This species, however, lacks that type of growth habit. It also lacks the sharp spines along the leaf edges that other pandanus have. Variegated Dwarf Pandanus is best shown off in a container and over-wintered inside as a houseplant.
