Description: Mike Johnson has a passion for these Great Granddaddies of the Bush. He is helping them to find a much-deserved place in the urban landscape by rescuing them from the path of the bulldozer and also expertly propagating them at his nursery in Busselton, W.A. where he has the greatest and biggest variety of stock anywhere in the world. Some of these Grass Trees were 'born' before Captain Cook's dad.
For years, Aussies have battled to get European style landscapes to survive in our extremes of climate, but there’s a new wave, a new look, and it's with these ancient sentries of the bush that look fantastic, and know how to live happily in the country where they have survived for thousands of years.
