Grasstree

Grasstree 4

Grasstrees (Xanthorrhoea preissii) are now in full bloom in Perth. These photos are of the same plant that we featured back on Sept 1, at Chidley Point Reserve in Perth. At that time the flowers hadn’t opened.

The tall flower spikes are covered in myriads of tiny flowers, and they are very popular with the bees. You will also find Grasstrees growing in many places around Perth, including Kings Park, nearby national parks, patches of bushland and even in some suburban gardens.
