Epilobium angustifolium!

Back in university, I studied range management and plant identification, as well as, participated on the university's 'Range Team.'  Despite the years passing ... it always amazes me that my mind remembers the scientific names of certain plants yet the common names escape me!!!  Well, this would be an example of that ... people always ask me what this plant is ... and all I remember is 'Epilobium angustifolium!'  Usually after my scientific name identification ... I run home and look up the common name ... "FIREWEED."  Wouldn't it be easier to just remember 'fireweed?'  Hmm ...


  1. Hmmm, I will take some of these for My garden :)

  2. Love it.....you & the latin names. You crack me up Kiddo.
