Over the last couple of weeks, I’ve been observing and photgraphing the stages of fireweed development. Also known as Great Willow-herb, it is one of the first plants to regenerate a burned area of forest. It gently colours pink the shoulders of our highways through late summer into fall. In the next few posts. I’ll be sharing the many changes this plant undergoes.
These images were captured in the last week of July. Pinkish-white spikes begin to appear from the greenery. Soft pink blossoms open from the bottom up.
