Grass Tree regrowth 4

BOTANICAL

Following the recent Victorian bushfires of February 2009, we were amazed to find, within weeks of the fires, such new lush green shoots growing from the trunks. The contrast between the burnt orange and green stalks was amazing. Grass Trees seem to be the first plants to recover.
