definitely not 'fire-proof'

While storm-resistant plants are the topical subject, it wasn't so long ago we were preoccupied with fire. It's argued the terms ‘fire-resistant' and ‘fire-retardant' plants are misleading. OK, no plant is going to resist fire indefinitely and bushfires do seem to have been getting more intense. Are they ‘fire-averse'? ‘Fire-reluctant'? ‘Fire-slow'? Any way, any first-hand reports of what plants have proven slower to catch alight would be a valuable contribution to the pool of horticultural knowledge.
