Chamerion or Epilobium has a very wide distribution but its key native habitats tend to be rocky slopes, screes and anywhere with stony and often disturbed soil. That's why they tended to pop up on sites that had been subject to bombing or fire in the world wars, earning it the name fireweed.

Epilobium syn Chamerion Angustifolium Album is a tall hardy perennial with willowy leaves and spires of white flowers in summer suitable for sun or semi-shade.
