Bamboo survived the Hiroshima nuclear test.

Bamboo

Did you know that bamboo can withstand high temperatures that most plants cannot? Bamboo was the only plant to withstand the radiation from the Hiroshima atomic explosions in 1945. Except for one bamboo grove, the incinerating heat obliterated all trees and other plant life. The grove has since been demolished, but culms from it are kept in a museum in Hiroshima.
