#1

Plants are one piece of a comprehensive fire-safe strategy. All plants burn though some more slowly than others, perhaps buying a bit more time before the fire damages your home.

The rule of thumb when it comes to fire safe plants is to remember that no plant is totally fire resistant. Plants should have a low sap or resin content, low maintenance requirements, grow without accumulating dead leaves and branches, and grow close to the ground in the defensible space within 100′ of your home.

If your fire safe plants aren’t maintained properly, they aren’t fire safe any more. This requires removing any dead or dry debris and watering them properly. Even succulents need water, especially during the summer.

Here are popular choices for fire safe plants.
