Xanthorrhoea glauca<br>The Blue Grass Tree


THESE PLANTS ARE TEMPORARILY OUT OF STOCK. PLEASE INQUIRE IF YOU ARE INTERESTED IN THIS PLANT

Xanthorrhoea glauca is also known as the “Blue Grass Tree,” from Australia. This is a spectacular caudiciform plant, whose spent leaf bases create a trunk, similar to that of a cycad. It can reach 20 feet tall and may become branched. Out of the trunk tops emerges a mass of long and thin but firm blue-green grass-like leaves, which extend 3 feet or so, arching over the trunk.

This plant periodically produces honey-scented white or cream flowers, clustered together in a spear-like spike which can rise 6 feet or more from the top of the trunk. The Grass Tree is cold-tolerant to below 20 degrees Fahrenheit, as it is native to an area where severe frosts are common.
