Pandanus amaryllifolius (Edible Pandanus)
Daun Pandan Rampe
P. amaryllifolius is a low growing (under one meter) plant with long narrow blade like leaves and woody aerial roots. It can be grown as a marginal plant in dams and ponds, used as a bedding plant in tropical landscaping and be used to hold creek banks. However it is most widely cultivated for use in Asian cooking and basket making.
It has a nutty botanical fragrance and is most commonly used in rice dishes or tied in a bundle and cooked with food.
Also useful in flower arrangements. We have an article on pandanus amaryllifolius here: http://nqheliconias.blogspot.com.au/2013/03/buying-pandanus-amaryllifolius-online.html
