Fire Regeneration

Some months ago not far from where I live, there was a bushfire that went through  a large conservation park called Cox’s Scrub. Its now six months since the fire. A friend and I took a leisurely stroll along one of the trails  and this is a taste of what we saw.

For many plants fire is essential for their continued survival. Some plants only grow after a fire.  
For sure there is so much to see besides blackened stumps…..

  1. Lovely photos Trees! The Lobelia apparently is famous for appearing after fires; The blue with five petals one is the Finger or Hand-flower (Cheiranthera alternifolia); the abundant yellow one is Golden Pennant (Glischrocaryon behrii); the big tall Trigger plant with the pink four petals is the Grass trigger plant (Stylidium armeria); the grass could be Austrostipa exilis but frankly I need a Botanist, and that little brown thing..no idea! xxx

  2. .. I posted on your blog but Ive just thought that you may be able to forward this to someone like Denzel Murfett or someother informed person to get the other plants ID’d x
