Look for the FireSmart plant tag at garden centres

What you plant and where you plant matters when it comes to protecting your house from wildfire. And while there are no fire-proof plants, there are FireSmart ones that are less prone to burning than others. But we get it. Most people just want to plant a pretty garden without doing a bunch of scientific research on what plants are safe, so we did all that for you and developed the FireSmart Plant Program with unique FireSmart Plant Tags to help you find safer plants at your local participating garden centre. Find your local program partner below.
