Plant Expert Reply:
It is easy to see why you are attracted to Fireweed (Epilobium angustifolium). When I was in Alaksa in 1998 the fields of fireweed were amazing.Â However, I haven't seen an artificial or dried version of fireweed.
Fireweed has many edible and medicial qualities. I do know that it is sold as an herbal tea in some areas.Â You might try drying your own.Â I found a website that talks about preserving fireweed.
You might check with a local Alaska florist, they may have artifical fireweed or know of a place that does.
