Steelgrass (Xanthorrhoea)

Steelgrass (Xanthorrhoea)

Steelgrass, (real name Xanthorrhoea), is the grass from a flowering plant native to Australia and is a member of the Zanthorrhoeaceae family.

Steelgrass grows extremely slowly - about 1 inch per year!

The most common name for steelgrass is 'blackboy' - referring to the flower that resembles an Aboriginal boy holding a spear. Other names include Grasstree and Yakka.

In the wholesale flower markets, steelgrass is sold by the weighted bunch, usually between 30 and 40 stems per bunch. There are two choices of stem length available: 80cm and 120cm.

Steelgrass is widely used in the floristry trade because it can be bent around flower arrangements, plaited and formed in to numerous shapes.
