Xanthorrhoea WF7723

Grass trees, also known as Xanthorrhoea, are a quintessential element in the aesthetic of the Australian bush. With their rigid grass-like leaves and rough-surfaced trunk, the plants can take up to twenty years to emerge and develop. While not all species develop an above-ground stem, they all have a secondary thickening meristem in the stem and are perennials. Artists of all kinds are constantly drawn to these beautiful plants. This image was created on Kangaroo Island's Flinders Chase National Park.
