Fireweed, Epilobium angustifolium
Fireweed is the floral emblem of the Yukon. It gets it name because of its amazing ability to spring up in burned-over areas, quickly transforming a bleak landscape into a sea of pink.

Fireweed spreads rapidly by seeds and rhizomes and can grow quickly to 1 - 3 metres tall.

People have found all sorts of uses for Fireweed, including making honey and tea and using parts of the plant in salads, soups and stews.
   
In autumn Fireweed takes on a special beauty with its cottony seed fluff.
