Wordless Wednesday : Mysterious Grass Trees - Twin Sentinels

Taller than the twins

Xanthorrhoea acaulis - A Grass tree  ?
Xanthorrhoea glauca subsp.agustifolia Grass Tree ?
Xanthorrhoea johnsonii -Johnson's Grass Tree ?

These magnificant Grass Trees grow one to two centimetres per year -possibly over 100yrs old. Grass trees have a life span of up to 600 years - finally three years of searching our property we found them after a neighbour told us of their existence.

If you come visit you'll have to find them !
