About the Mast Tree
If you love the look of tall, slender Italian Cypress trees, but are unable to grow them successfully, you will love the attention-getting Mast Tree, or Polyalthia longifolia ‘Pendula.’ It is fairly new to Florida grower production, but is destined to become a popular landscaping choice.
The native of India and Sri Lanka grows to 30 to 45 feet tall by 4 to 5 feet wide at maturity with a straight, thin trunk (once used to build ship masts), and layers of feathery, wavy-edged leaves that hang from drooping branches.
The Mast Tree’s lush foliage ranges from coppery brown when new, to light lime green, to a glossy dark green as the trees age. Leaves remain on the tree in all seasons, almost completely covering the trunk and creating an eye-catching and colorful focal point.
Fragrant star-like pale green flowers appear once a year in the spring or summer and typically last for two to three weeks. Due to their color, they are barely noticeable, but attract butterflies and birds.
Tall, narrow Mast Trees can be used as tall hedges, privacy screens, noise screens, windbreaks, to line driveways, avenues and walkways, or as architectural accents to frame entryways, soften building corners and vertical edges, and cover vertical drain-pipes. They are also suitable for narrow spaces because they grow quite tall but stay slender.
They have very little leaf drop, no pest issues of note, and require little to no maintenance. They prefer well-drained soil, will grow in full sun or partial shade, and are drought-tolerant when mature.
