    Chamaenerion angustifolium

    Epilobium angustifolium



    Fireweed is a perennial wildflower widely found across the Northern Hemisphere. Often appearing after wildfires, rocky terrain, dry forests, and fields. It thrives in full to partial sun and well-drained medium-to-dry soil, but can tolerate various soil types. It boasts a stunning, vibrant pink flower bloom that emerges from the stem during the summer and is complemented by its lance-shaped leaves.


    A fast grower that can reach 2m in height, it is abundant with flowers and attracts pollinators. Although a hardy species, it can spread aggressively if not controlled and does not fare well with competition from other plants. Nevertheless, it adds a colourful touch to gardens and is ideal for covering exposed spaces. Its name originates from its typical appearance after wildfires.
