Mount Lofty Ranges Grass Tree

Mount Lofty Ranges Grass Tree (Xanthorrhoea quadrangulata) amongst native vegetation grown from direct seeding in 1998 by Greening Australia/Friends of Cobbler Creek/DENR between Teakle Ruin and the Grove Way. They take 11 years to mature and flower. Control of Coolatai grass by the Friends of Cobbler Creek has given this plant some space to continue growing well. The nearest surviving remnant population is on the cliffs of the Little Para Valley; locals say it used to grow naturally in Cobbler Creek.
