Epilobium is also known as French Willow, Rosebay, Firewood or Willow herb. With its funnel-shaped flowers, Epilobium is great for attracting hummingbirds, bees and butterflies to the garden.

Before Planting: Sometimes, it’s best to plant the seeds in a flat first and then plant the flat in the ground. If sowing indoors first, you must stratify the seeds.

Planting: Sow the Epilobium outside in the fall, and plant the seeds 1/8 inch deep. Germination will take two to four weeks. If started indoors, transplant Epilobium in the spring and space the 12 to 24 inches apart.

Watering: Epilobium does best when it is in soil that is consistently moist so try not to let these plants dry out between watering.

Fertilizer: Epilobium spreads easily, so fertilizer is not necessary to encourage the growth of this plant.

Days to Maturity: The Epilobium typically blooms in the middle of the summer.

Harvesting: Epilobium can be beautiful cut flowers. However, they attract the beneficial insects and birds so it may be best to let it grow in your garden without cutting it.

Tips: The plants will spread rapidly, so gardeners should deadhead the spent flowers before they go to seed if you don’t want the plant to spread throughout their garden.
