The Fireweed gets its name from being a hardy pioneer plant following devastating forest fires and is essential for regenerating the soil. The brilliant floral essence has also been known to help regenerate the soul. I felt that flow of energy when I came across this incredibly vibrant field of fireweed. It was August and I was out exploring the backroads of the Kenai Peninsula northwest of Homer.
Blooming from bottom-to-top the Common Fireweed is considered a seasonal gauge - when the uppermost blossoms bloom many feel summer is all but over. During autumn the seedpods burst and, with the help of a fluffy down tail feather, the seeds are distributed by the wind. They are lofted far and wide looking for targets to take root in and regenerate.
