Kusamaki Pine or Buddhist Pine is a tropical-looking small tree with dense, elegant foliage, grown in Asian in gardens from Hong Kong to Japan. It is a conifer, just like pine trees.

The ripe cone arils are edible, though the seed should not be eaten. When  the cones mature, their scales swell up and become reddish purple, fleshy and berry-like, 1–2 cm long

Pandanus macrophyllus is native to southern Japan and southern and eastern China, always found in forests, open thickets, and roadsides from near sea level to 1000 m. It is the northernmost species of the genus and of course the hardiest.

The wood is resistant to termites and water.

It is easy to grow but a bit slow. It takes drought and frost to -12 C. It is a good coastal plant as it is salt and heat tolerant.

Podocarpus macrophylla is highly regarded as a feng shui tree in a few countries in Asia.
