The top 10 Fire Retardant plants compiled in these lists are based on scientific research and suggestions from various articles. Please note though, that any plant can burn when exposed to enough flames or heat, it is just that some are less likely or may take longer to ignite than others. For this reason you cannot rely on plant selection alone to stop a bush fire, but it does make sense to use plants that generally have a delayed ignition.
