Botanic Name : Xanthorrhoea preissii

A distinctive Australian evergreen plant with its striking, unusual trunk and shock of thin grass-like leaves 1.5m (5') in length sprouting from the top.
In late Winter or early Spring it produces a flower spike up to 3.5m (11') long from the head of the plant from which it disperses its seeds on the wind in late Summer. The minute white flowers are clustered thickly along the whole of the flower spike.
The Grass Tree will gradually grow to a form its characteristic trunk. The trunk becomes blackened in nature by naturally occurring bush fires which also stimulate flowering to occur in the following Winter / Spring. However, these plants will just as often flower without the effects of a fire
