Artist's Description

Grass trees are the native trees of Western Australia even though they do grow through out Australia. All are perennials and have a secondary thickening meristem in the stem.

Many, but not all, species develop an above ground stem. This is rough-surfaced, built from accumulated leaf-bases around the secondarily thickened trunk. The trunk is sometimes unbranched, some species will branch if the growing point is damaged and others naturally grow numerous branches. Flowers are borne on a long spike above a bare section called a scape, the total length can be up to four metres long in some species. Flowering occurs in a distinct flowering period, which varies for each species. Flowering can be stimulated by bushfire, in which case it occurs in the next flowering period after the fire. This was taken after the fire.

The City of Joondalup is in the fast growing northwest corridor of Perth, with its southern boundary located just 15kms from the Central Business District of Perth. With a population of approximately 164,000 and a total land area of approximately 97 square kilometres, the City is one of the largest local governments in Western Australia by population.
