2. Araucaria heterophylla (Norfolk Pine)

This plant very much resembles a pine tree with its thin leaves that gather in one stem. Longer stems are present at the bottom of the tree and become shorter as you go upwards. It can grow up to 49 feet (15 meters) tall. With its height and commanding presence, it can very well be the star in your garden this Christmas.
