Fireweed...graceful purple-pink to rose-lilac spires of flowers signify the Fireweed. This statuesque perennial’s leaves are food for deer and elk. The seeds have white, fluffy tufts that carry them away in the slightest breeze. Its common name is derived from its ability to re-vegetate quickly after a fire. It is found throughout the entire North American continent. The flowers bloom successively up the stalk, letting it have a very long bloom season. Honey made by Fireweed-pollinating bees is said to be exceptional, apiarists are known to follow recently logged areas to gather Fireweed induced honey.
