Gardeners' Notes:

Neutral palmbob On Feb 3, 2010, palmbob from Acton, CA (Zone 8b) wrote:

got this as a dinky seedling and really didn't think it would do well for me, since most Pandanus die here (too cold sensitive).. but this plant has done fine... .unfortunately. It is a huge risk walking by as it has very sharp teeth that invariably hook me and try to rip off my skin. Plant in 5 years has grown from a 1 gal seedling to about 6' tall and with a rosette diameter of about 10'. Not a good plant for the average yard, at least near a walkway. Not horribly attractive for a Pandanus, either. P utilis is a much better choice of So Cal gardens.
