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.
