Xanthorrhoea are impressive plants that originate in Australia. They are also known Australian grass trees. Xanthorrhoea’s are so unique that they will definitely catch the attention of visitors and passer-by’s. They are called grass trees as they look similar to grass, but then on a trunk. Leaves are blueish grey of colour with a black trunk. This black colour is often caused by bushfires. Xanthorrhoea can survive bushfires as the trunk serves as insulation against heat. Not only will it survive it, it even stimulates the flowering. Flowering consists of a spike on top of a scape. Xanthorrhoea can generally reach up to five metres tall. Xanthorrhoea is an evergreen perennial and can usually withstand up to -3 ℃. If it gets colder than that, make sure to protect the plants with sufficient winter protection. That way, you can keep the plants outside in your garden all year round. Despite that they can grow well indoors as well.
Xanthorrhoea is a real eye catcher for your garden. Despite its fantastic appearance, this plant can offer more than just that. No less impressive is the fact that Xanthorrhoea can reach 600 years old. Australis grass trees are slow growing tree. On average, they grow 1 - 2,5 cm per year. Nonetheless, the most impressive fact remains their ability to survive (and even thrive) in forest fires. Forest fires will even boost the flowering.
