    Default Showy fireweed?

    What can you tell me about it? I've got lots around - bees, especially Bumbles seem to hang out on it. I keep misidentifying it as loose-strife and each time my wife gets out the field guide and shows me the error of my ways. I've got some flowers right next to the keyboard here and I am officially convinced that it is Fireweed.
