Australia has over 25 varieties of these plants, they are related to lilies, are very fire resistant, have a single centre stem of strong scented flowers that imitates a spear, have a short single trunk made up of old leaf supports held together with natural resins. These resins were used by traditional Aboriginals as glue for spearheads etc. Have a mass of 70-cm dark green thin leaves that resemble a grass skirt. They grow in well-spaced groups and were once known as "blackboys," but out of respect for our Australian Aboriginals the name was changed. They stand up to 2 meters high, are very slow growing and can live for many years (100yrs +). Because of their majestic look ... they are highly sort after landscaping trees…..
