NINA`S FIREWEED TEA
This herb is often abundant in wet calcareous to slightly acidic soils in
open fields, pastures, and particularly burned-over lands; the name
Fireweed derives from the species' abundance as a coloniser on burnt
sites after forest fires. Its tendency to quickly colonize open areas with
little competition, such as sites of forest fires and forest clearings,
makes it a clear example of a pioneer species. Plants grow and flower
as long as there is open space and plenty of light. As trees and brush
grow larger the plants die out, but the seeds remain viable in the soil
seed bank for many years; when a new fire or other disturbance occurs
that opens up the ground to light again, the seeds germinate. Some areas
with heavy seed counts in the soil can, after burning, be covered with
pure dense stands of this species and when in flower the landscape is
turned into fields of color.
