The Wallum Grass Tree is a trunkless, tufting plant that, in its natural habitat, grows in periodically waterlogged sites on sand in coastal areas. this plant has a restricted distribution, occurring only on the coast from Central NSW to S E QLD. 

Flowers are creamy-white and clustered along a spike up to 60 cm long, many honeyeaters and invertebrates feed on their abundant nectar.

Bush Food: To Aborigines the grass tree was an exceptionally useful plant. The flower is laden with sweet nectar and can be sucked or soaked in water to produce a sweet drink.  The resin was used as a glue and the wooden flower stalks were made into fire sticks or spears.

Germination: Sow in warm areas anytime. In frost prone areas when danger of frost is over. Xanthorrhoea will sprout in regular potting soil. Place the seed and 1/8 inch to 1/4 inch below the surface and cover with a thin layer of sand. Water with a fine mist spray to avoid disturbance of the seed. Place in a warm shaded or semi-shaded position to avoid drying out.
