Xanthorrhoea minor. It is an Australian native grass-like plant that does not develop an above ground trunk. The flowers contain considerable nectar which was used by aborigines to produce a sweet drink by soaking the flowers in water. The nectar also attracts honey eating birds. Flowering occurs in spring but it may not occur annually. It's an excellent garden plant that requires well drained soils in sun or dappled shade. The plant also makes an excellent container specimen.
