Fireweed - A Potential Powerhouse

This attractive plant has gorgeous pink flowers and would probably look great in a bouquet, but I'm guessing you won't find it in any florist shops. This pretty slice of nature just happens to be categorized as a weed.

Like most weeds, Epilobium Angustifolium, (also Chamaenerion Angustifolium and Chamerion Angustifolium) is a hardy plant that is real good at surviving without any special prodding or pampering from humans.

The common name: Fireweed.
