Indigenous to Northern BC, Fireweed helps rebuild ecosystems after a fire or clear cut. It also has a story of foretelling winter! Fireweed blooms bottom to top – once completely bloomed, the first snowfall of the year is said not to be far. Next to predicting winter, this versatile plant also has uses from teas and salad to fire starter.
