I love these plants and saw so many growing beside the roads around the Mt Bold Reservoir here in South Australia that I decided to try and grow them at our place. We live on a larger and hillier than average block with clay and shale so not what you’d call an ideal gardening environment. I bought 3 tiny Grass Tree seedlings from the plant nursery at Belair National Park. I planted them in a little cluster but only 1 survived. I can’t remember what year I bought them but they are very slow growing. In 2012 there was a glorious flowering spike and the plant looks as though it’s in for the long haul. It’s not the kind of Grass Tree that has the growing trunk.

Oh, this is just lovely! As someone who has nurtured and grown these from seed, I am so pleased to have read this post and can share your delight!
You should be very satisfied that you’ve managed to grow them from seed! I’m pleased as punch I had a survivor from 3 seedlings.
