Dramatic iconic native grass tree, long part of Australian history and subject of a thousand artworks. Can survive fire which often results in intense flowering. X. glauca differs from the more common X. johnsonii in having blue-grey leaves. Although grass trees are slow growing in dry conditions, they are certainly worth the wait.

Xanthorrhoea glauca - grass tree

APPEARANCE :  Uniquely Australian, hardy grass tree with rough dark textured trunk and central tuft of foliage. X. glauca has blue-green-grey leaves, and is native to the south east.
USE FOR : Rockeries, landscape gardens and container planting. Architectural accent planting. Waterwise and dry gardens. An iconic Australian look.
LOCATION : Plant in very well drained soil in a full sun position in the garden; site carefully as they don't really like replanting. Grass trees will tolerate part shade. Avoid too much humidity as it can encourage the development of fungus in a sheltered spot.
CARE : Plant the crown of the plant slightly above the soil level to help with drainage. Mulch and water only as required, drought tolerant once established. Regular watering will result in faster growth but your plant may not be as tolerant of harsh conditions.
HEIGHT & WIDTH:   2m H x 1.5 m W.
YOUR PLANTS : These are tubestock plants, healthy young plants with new roots that will establish quickly in your garden. The pot size is 80mm high and 42 mm wide.
You can see an example in the image gallery.
