"Fire seeds are used in certain potions. It is advisable to make sure that the fires on the bushes that bear them are thoroughly extinguished before picking."
Folio Bruti on the fire seed Bush[src]

The fire seed bush, also known as fire seed plant,[1] was a magical plant that burned for as long as it lived.[1]

Description

A Fire seed bush

It produced fire seeds, which were used in certain potions[2] and for hatching dragon eggs.[1]

Fire seed bushes were grown in the Herbology greenhouses at Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry.[2] There was also a small group of caves in the Forbidden Forest clearing known as the Fire Seed Caves, in which grew several plants of this kind.[1]

Behind the scenes

  • The Fire Seed Bush may be a reference to the 'burning bush' described in the Bible's Book of Exodus.
  • The design for the Fire Seed Bush used in third video game resembles an acacia without leaves, which is said by some scholars to be the kind of bush the biblical character of Moses likely witnessed appearing to burn without being consumed.
