Commonly known as Johnson's Grass Tree or just Grass Tree, this is a distinctive Australian native plant known for its iconic appearance. It features a robust, woody trunk topped with a tuft of long, narrow, grass-like leaves that create a bushy crown. This species is particularly admired for its dramatic flower spikes that can rise 2 to 3 meters above the foliage, producing hundreds of small, creamy-white flowers that attract a wide array of pollinators, including bees and birds. Its resilience and unique form make it a spectacular feature in gardens, adding both architectural interest and a touch of the Australian landscape.

Care Considerations:

This plant is extremely drought-tolerant once established but can benefit from the occassional deep watering during prolonged dry periods. Fertilisation is not required as it is adapted to nutrient-poor soils. Care should be taken when planting or transplanting as its roots are sensitive to disturbance.
