Fireweed

Chamaenerion angustifolium

This native flowering perennial spreads easily and is often found in forest clearings, along roadsides, and in low, wet places. Commonly establishes after fires, hence the name fireweed. Creates 3-6 ft tall spires of pinkish-purple blooms from June through September. A great food source for butterflies, bees, other beneficial insects, and hummingbirds.
