Description

A Long, Lovely Column of Drooping Branches Adorned with Feathery Leaves

The Polyalthia Longifolia Pendula is one of the most unique additions to your landscaping. It’s often called the Mast Tree, as craftsmen used its flexible, lightweight wood to construct masts for sailing ships. Native to India and Sri Lanka, the tree is much beloved there. Locals use its leaves in religious ceremonies.

Artistically tall and slender, the Mast Tree is surprisingly wind resistant. In fact, the tree works well as a subtropical substitute for the Italian Cypress. Many folks use them in group plantings as a windbreak or privacy hedge. They can quickly grow to 40 ft. tall in their preferred condition: lots of light and a moderate amount of water. In the same family as the Ylang Ylang tree, the Mast Tree will flower in the spring with star-shaped clusters that attract birds and butterflies.
