This showy, upright perennial can sometimes grow to as much as 8' in height. Spikes of four-petaled pink flowers bloom from July to August or September. Spreads by means of its root system; well suited for use in meadows or other situations where its vigorous growth can be accomodated. The young shoots and leaves can be eaten in early spring. Mature leaves have been used for tea, and the plant has a history of medicinal use. Prefers a moist, well-drained location. The plant frequently grows in areas that have recently been burned or otherwise disturbed, hence the common name. One of the first plants to return to areas devastated by the eruption of Mt. St. Helens in Washington State.
