Fireweed(Epilobium Angustifolium) - Start Fireweed seeds for this versatile perennial that offers beauty as well as value as a medicinal herb. The perennial has slender upright spikes of flowers in shades of rosy pink in the months of June - September. It gets its name from the fact that it is often the first weed to colonize in an area that has been destroyed by fire. Other common names include: Willow Herb, Rosebay Willowherb, and Yanagiran. Native Americans used the Willowherb plant as a good source of vitamin C and pro-vitamin A. Medicinally, the herb seeds can also be grown to relieve inflammation, draw out infection in wounds, and to treat burns. Fireweed is very attractive to bees and butterflies, and Fireweed honey has become quite sought after. Fireweed seeds do best with a cold/moist treatment for 4 weeks prior to planting, or directly sow the herb seeds outdoors in the fall.
