What is fireweed honey and where does it come from?

I live in Ohio; no one here has ever heard of it. My friend in Oregon told me about it.

Fireweed honey, or the "champagne of honeys", results from bees pollinating the redish purple colored fireweed flora found in the cool climate and higher elevations of the Pacific Northwest region of the United States. Fireweed blooms after fires or in damaged soil approximately every two years for a duration of about one week and requires less than fifty percent humidity.

Honey picks up the flavor of the pollen the bees collect to make it. Bees that gather pollen from "fireweed" make fireweed honey.
