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 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

DESCRIPTION:  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 IN: Rockeries, landscape gardens and container planting. Architectural accent planting. Waterwise and dry gardens.
LOCATION: Plant in very well drained soil in a full sun position in the garden; site carefully as they don't much 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: Take care not to plant the crown of the plant below the soil level. Mulch and water only as required, drought tolerant once established.
HEIGHT & WIDTH:  2m H x 1.5 m W.
YOUR PLANTS: These plants 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
