A stunning, small tree or large shrub that is very rare in home cultivation, a real gem. It is a bushy rainforest plant with dark glossy green leaves to 18" long. Spectacular white, strongly pineapple scented, tubular flowers occur on the trunk and larger branches with the onset of rain. The scent of masses of flowers permeates through the garden. A fast growing species in a moist site with bright or filtered light. Tolerates moist soils. Fruit eating birds relish the glossy fruit. The flesh of the fruit is stringy and reputed to be poisonous to humans. The plant generally looses its leaves and looks crummy in cold weather. A subtropical alternative would be P. chermsideana.
