These lists are only guidelines - a starting point, if you will. Use this to learn more about what plants you may want to encourage (or discourage!) in your yard, and reach out to your local nursery or landscape professional for more information.
The following is a short list of drought-tolerant plant material. This list is only a starting point, and not the final word. Growing conditions in your yard and maintenance techniques and timing affect the relative fire-resistance and drought tolerance of plants. Those which generally have some fire-resistance are noted, as well as those which may suffer freeze damage inland. Spp. indicates more than one species is commonly grown.
R = Plants with some fire-resistance
F = Plants which may freeze inland
Highly Flammable Plants
Use these plants with extreme caution. They can be a hazard near buildings or wooden structures, and will need a higher level of maintenance. Keep any existing plants on this list clear of each other, free of any dry debris, and trimmed clear of any structures.
Those denoted with P are considered Pyrophtyes - they almost attract fire.
