Fire Diary – Week 5 (7 March)

One of the fastest growing species after fire that I have come across is Asparagus rubicundus (wild asparagus, katdoring). The photo below was taken just one month after fire showing the amazing growth of this resprouting species.

Not only had this individual grown more than 1.2 m in a month but a close up of the plant reveals that it was already in full flower.
