'Australian Grass Tree' seeds

Xanthorrhoea preissii

  • Perennial to 150cm
  • Australian Native

Perennial growing to to 150cm. This iconic Western Australian native plant forms a tall black tree-like base over a very long period of time. Loves dry warm climates, full sun and sandy soils. Drought tolerant and fire hardy. Very slow growing and long lived, great landscape feature plant. Produces tall spires of creamy white flowers. Also known as "Balga". 

Note: Seeds of many native plants are dormant and will not germinate until ideal environmental conditions are met. Follow instructions for pre-treatment and sowing, and be patient; some wild harvested seeds can take much longer to germinate than expected.
