Grass Tree Root 140mm x 55mm x 150mm
The grass tree Xanthorrhoea is a uniquely Australian plant, which epitomises the Australian landscape and is as tough as goats' knees. It will withstand drought. Bushfires will burn the foliage and blacken the stump, but then it regrows. In fact often a bushfire will encourage flower development.
When it does flower, it produces spikes, which can grow up to two metres and which eventually turn brown. It can take 20 years for just a trunk to form .... and it will take years for one to reach its full height.
Some of the older Grass Trees can be as old as 500years!
These Grass Tree Roots are perfect to turn into bowls, vases and hollow forms. They are easily turned and once turned gives you the appearance similar to snake skin.
