Description

The Grass Tree will gradually grow to a form its characteristic trunk. The trunk becomes blackened in nature due to naturally occurring bushfires which also  stimulate flowering to occur in the following Winter / Spring. However, these plants will just as often flower without the effects of a fire.

In late Winter or early Spring it produces a flower spike up to 3m (10′) long from the head of the plant from which it disperses its seeds on the wind in late Summer. The minute white flowers are clustered thickly along the whole of the flower spike.
