Mexican Fireweed

I just ADORE this plant. Everyone needs several. It glows in the garden and the leaves look like silk. It hasn't even started to put out the firey, red flower spikes and its berries and it already looks glorious. When the sun shines through the leaves it is like a taste of the sublime (but whatever the equivalent of that is for the eyes)


  1. Also, are you sure that's what that is? It doesn't look anything at all like the wikipedia photos.
