Fireweed Chamerion angustifolium
Fireweed is often the first plant to grow back after a forest fire and can totally cover burnt sites, that’s how it got its name. The bright purplish pink is a striking contrast to black tree trunks. This people sized plant is also very common on roadsides or other clearings. Fireweed is the flower of the Yukon.
Other flowers blooming at this time are goldenrod, cow wheat, asters and yarrow. Soon the flower season is over.
