The following plants have been found to provide some degree of protection during bushfires. Many of these don’t easily catch alight or burn very slowly. Good management of your bushland is imperative to maintain the effectiveness of these plants as a fire-retardant barrier – weed and debris management is essential around your plants.
It should go without saying that this information is general in nature, and no plant is completely fire-proof. Everything will burn if it is hot enough and dry enough.
Please note: Katanning Environmental Nursery is a local nursery, providing plants within the south-west of Western Australia only.
