Xanthorrhoea (Australian Grass Tree)

Grass Trees is an ancient, primitive genus with several species distributed throughout arid region in Australia. All make very long, grass like, usually nicely bluish-green colored leaves arranged in a dense rosette. With age several species produce a massive stem, which is resistant to bushfires in their habitat. They grow very slow, however these unusual plants may reach several hundreds of years. On reaching maturity (some 10 years after sowing) plants may produce a single central, very tall inflorescence resembling a candle-like stick with numerous small whitish-green flowers. All are easily cultivated in any fertile, humus-rich, sandy to stony soil in full sun throughout the year. In winter keep plants almost completely dry at a minimum of some 10°C.
Grass trees are easily raised from seed. Sow flat in any humus-rich, slightly sandy, well drained substrate at some 20°C. After germination keep pots slightly drier and especially in winter in full sun.
20 seeds per package, unless not stated differently.
