Xanthorrhoea preissii Grass Tree Balga 15 seeds
Seeds from this Australian favorite Xanthorrhoea preissii common name Balga or Grass Tree. An unusual plant from Western Australia with a stocky trunk to 23 ft. tall that holds a bristly crown of long, hard, narrow, needle like leaves that remind of a large tuft of grass. It is common in areas with frequent brush fires that leave the trunk blackened, hence the common name. Growth is slow, but plants are robust and very drought tolerant and can take some frost with ease. It does best in warm temperate climates and prefers a place in sun on well drained ground. Zones 9 to 11.
