Comments

Fireweed is attractive while in bloom, but becomes ragged in appearance afterwards. This plant can't be confused with most other Epilobium spp. because of their much smaller flowers. However, it does resemble Epilobium hirsutum (Hairy Fireweed), which is not native to Illinois. This latter plant has long, soft, spreading hairs, while Epilobium angustifolium (Fireweed) is hairless. Return
