Ancestor:Descendants:

The Firegrass replaced it's ancestor. It now reproduces by releasing airborne seeds that travel far distances across Flisch Savanna, Flisch Chaparral and Krakow Scrub. It's leaves have become curved, though not sharp. Young grasses are purple for the first 2–3 months. Older grasses become orange in color, thus giving it it's name. Since firegrass reproduces at different times of the year, the landscape is given a purple/orange color. Despite it's seed's ability to glide long distances, it's ability to spread to eastern Glicker is landlocked.
