fireweed, a plant that likes grows in disturbed areas and burned areas after forest/wild fires. Neighbor was growing in a pot next to the fence a year or so ago (for reasons we never determined) and we had a self seeded start on our side of the fence that was very happily dug up and put into a pot. And it's blooming!
So we'll have seeds and be able to spread some about in certain disturbed areas out back.
Deer love fireweed, although this particular pot is out of their reach (there is a reason for high fences). A crop out back for them will make some fine dining.We keep them out of the back yard with the fence, but plant with them in mind in front and in the "wild" area. Critters need to eat too.
