Fireweed Flowers (Chamaenerion angustifolium)
Fireweed (Chamaenerion angustifolium) flowers blooming in the Fraser Valley of British Columbia, Canada. In my backyard these flowers are a favorite of Bumblebees and Hummingbirds. Fireweed often takes over in new clearings made by fire (or clear cuts etc), hence the name. C. angustifolium is largely known as Fireweed in North America but is called Great Willowherb in parts of Canada. In Britain and Ireland it is known as Rosebay Willowherb or Bombweed. Other names include Saint Anthony's laurel.
