    Popularly called a Norfolk Pine, it is a very popular house plant, from the south Pacific I believe. Not hardy, but good to give the feel of outdoors to an indoor space. Likes to be kept moist and likes decent humidity. Don't recall the botanical name though. Can grow quite large and last a long time if given the right care. Quite popular in conservatories and botanical gardens, became widespread during Victorian times.

    Coral Reef Araucaria Araucaria columnaris. Very commonly mis-sold as A. heterophylla.
