‘THE FIRE LOTUS’ Petrophile (Cone Bush) after Wildfire. While walking through an area that had recently been in a wildfire I noticed several of these perfectly symmetrical cones from a Petrophile. They are in the Proteaceae family just like Banksias. Their cones are only about 10cm long and immediately after fire they are bright red. Their seeds are carried in the wind on small wings of white fluff.
