FIREWEED or WILLOW HERB
Often the first perennial to colonize disturbed or burnt over areas; this native has many uses: new shoots can be cooked like asparagus, steeped into teas, flavoring for candies, jellies and ice creams, bees collect pollen for a spicy honey.
Natives taught settlers to draw out poison from open wounds & injuries; also used as a mild remedy for digestive ailments.
Not bad for something named ‘weed’!
