Xanthorrhoea preissii
“Australian Grass Tree”

This iconic Australian native clearly adds dynamic character anywhere you plant it and makes an ideal focal specimen for any garden. Slow growing, robust tufts of long, radiating, slender, evergreen foliage will spread to 3’ x 3’ at maturity (7-10 years) and begin to bloom with dramatic, towering spires of creamy white flowers loved by bees and butterflies. Aging to brown, the spires persist for months, extending the architectural awesomeness. After many years, the tufts rise up above dark, stout, palm-like 4’ trunks, looking very Doctor Seuss-like. Well-drained soil. Do not water crown. Drought tolerant. Deer resistant. To 8-10’. Hardy to 15-20 degrees F.
