It's not known as Epilobium, but Chamerion.

Chamerion is Willow herb or fireweed, Epilobium is Rosebay Willow herb.

I have this in one part of my garden and have been trying all year to get rid of it. I agree that it's a very attractive plant, but it just spreads so much that it smothers anything. I'm all for wild flowers, infact i have a wild flower border but this is just too invasive to have near the garden, so i've been digging it up and planting bits of root well away from the house down the side of our field.

I'm hoping that one year of constant digging up the shoots that appear all over the area will kill it.. we shall see.
