Shipping calculated at checkout.



Common Name: Grass Tree

Xanthorrhoea are commonly referred to as grasstrees, alluding to their tree-like appearance, with stout trunks and grass-like leaves fanning out from the crown. The dense flowering spikes of X. preissii can reach an impressive 3 m in length and are a prominent feature of the landscape in south-west Australia. 

Grass trees grow slowly, but dislike being transplanted, so it is important to plan your garden design and plant them in their final spot in the garden.
