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.
