It grows on cool soils, preferably acidic, in partial shade or full sun

Chamerion angustifolium forms large tufts of erect stems on which are lanceolate leaves pretty fresh gree

Graceful spikes of bright purple flowers above foliage, nectar-producing and very attractive to bees

Flowering takes place continuously throughout the summer

Fireweed colonizes an area through its rhizomatous roots

The plant also spreads through its cottony seeds carried by the wind

Yet it is not invasive

Cultivated mainly as an ornamental plant, it is also used to make herb tea in Scandinavian countries (flowers)

Its young leaves and young stems (young only) are edible cooked

Chamerion angustifolium has many medicinal properties: Anti-inflammatory, Antispasmodic, Astringent, Softener, Poultice, Emollient, Hypnotic, Laxative, Tonic
