Beautiful graceful plant. Likes free draining soil. Has tall flower spike and often becomes multi headed after flowering. In our experience it seems to like being around other plants. Doesn’t like phosphate fertilizer.
The Xanthorrhoea Johnsonii is a dramatic and spectacular species of grass tree native to Australia. The thickened trunks are black as a result of bush fires. The trunk is made up of a mass of old leaf bases held together by a natural resin and the centre is fibrous.
Australian Grass Trees – Please note they require NO phosphate in any fertilizers, give a mix of potash and nitrogen, and be mindful of fertilizing plants around them as it may leach down and will kill these beautiful plants.
