Instead, I'd imagine B.C., the Yukon, and Alaska, where I've seen this plant growing freely.
But as Fireweed likes open areas and riverbanks, why wouldn't it like growing beside a Saskatchewan slough?
And on the bank above the water the day I took these pictures, three plants were growing, full and healthy...
Who knows? Next year, there may be none... or more.
