Re: Norfolk Island Pine at South Padre Island

Maybe. Araucaria columnaris and A. heterophylla are quite similar when young, both called Norfolk Island Pine because of the superficial similarity of the adult plants also. Neither will do well where there is much frost, are mostly a familiar feature of cities in subtropical and tropical climates.
