Immortal fragrance packed the quivering breeze.
In groves that seemed moved bosoms and trembling depths
The million children of the undying spring
Bloomed, pure unnumbered stars of hued delight
Nestling for shelter in their emerald sky:
Faery flower-masses looked with laughing eyes.
It has an extraordinary power of attraction.
Pandanus palm, Thatch screw pine
Highly fragrant tiny woolly cream yellow flowers borne on very dense spikes that are enclosed in folded leaflike triangular sheaths with sharp barbed thorns on the margins, the whole resembling an ear of corn. A large shrub with aerial prop roots and stiff spiny leaves.
