Fire-Resistant Plants for Home Landscapes

Amy Jo Detweiler , Stephen Fitzgerald ,

As homeowners continue to build in the wild and urban interface, they must take special precautions to protect their homes. One way to do this is to create a defensible space around the home, and one important factor can be using fire-resistant plants in landscaping. While taking actions to create a defensible space do not ensure that your home will survive a wildfire, they substantially increase the chances. This publication provides a diverse list of plants that are both fire-resistant and attractive. Plants are listed by categories: groundcovers, perennials, shrubs, and trees. Sun and water requirements are included for each plant.
