Grass tree \Grass“ tree”\ (Bot.)
(a) An Australian plant of the genus Xanthorrh[oe]a, having
a thick trunk crowned with a dense tuft of pendulous,
grasslike leaves, from the center of which arises a long
stem, bearing at its summit a dense flower spike looking
somewhat like a large cat-tail. These plants are often
called “blackboys” from the large trunks denuded and
blackened by fire. They yield two kinds of fragrant
resin, called Botany-bay gum, and Gum Acaroides.
