Identifikacija:
An attractive screw pine, usually found along the shoreline in many South East Asian countries. In Taiwan I have observed this species growing at both sea-level and at over 1000 m elevation in coastal mountains. Like many Pandanus species the seeds are born in keys of 5-10 seeds fused together. These keys are planted whole, and the seedlings are separated into individual plants at a later time.

Opće informacije:
I originally thought this acquired its scientific name from the smell of its decaying fruits, but I couldn't have been more wrong. It gets both its scientific name and its english name from the pleasant fragrance extracted from its leaves. The leaves are also used in Asian cooking and can fetch high prices in the shops, and are in demand. Also used to produce Kewra water in India. Seeds and plants are seldom seen outside of its native range.
