Rosebay Willowherb
 

 

Rosebay Willowherb is a common, but not unattractive weed, mainly of waste ground and increasingly in urban areas. Its alternative name of Fireweed indicates how it is quick to colonise ground after clearance by fire or by other means.

It is a tall plant with a spike of red-purple flowers usually appearing from about July to September..
