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.
