We decided a few years ago to let this native plant take over a few patches in our flower beds.

I have not regretted the decision for one second.

It never has to be watered.

The tallest of the stalks are over 7 feet tall, creating a lovely mini forest.

I do wish us North Americans had a bit more imagination though, and called it by the name our British counterparts use... doesn't Rosebay Willowherb sound SO much more romantic than Fireweed?

Lovely flower and I even find the name likeable. Just thought I'd let you know I am currently stitching my adaptation of your Make Do sampler and loving it. It's a charming chart and I thank you for sharing it. If you want to take a peak, clicking on my name should lead you to my blog.
