Overview
Chamerion angustifolia (Fireweed) is a towering, beautiful addition to a meadow or native plant garden where it can naturalize. This showy native perennial is topped by a flowering spike of bright magenta-pink flowers in summer. Its foliage turns burgundy red in fall for additional interest. After flowers fade, seed pods will split open when ripe, and seeds fly away borne on fine hair-like threads. Fireweed is an important pollinator plant and a host plant for moths.
