Canada Nettle

Canada Nettle

Laportea canadensis

Wood Nettle


The long leaf petioles and mist-like whitish green flowers give an overall appearance of daintiness and delicacy.  But beware of the stinging hairs along the stems! Great for woodland gardens and considered the best Nettle for cooked greens, soup and tea.
