Stinging Nettle Find a Weed

(Urtica Dioica) The stinging nettle is a perennial with toothed, downy leaves, which flowers over the summer months and may grow to more than a metre in height. It is covered with tiny hairs on its leaves and it is these that cause the stinging sensation when plants are touched. Often a raised, red rash will appear after contact with the stinging hairs. It has invasive, creeping roots with extensive food reserves that assist it to endure otherwise adverse conditions and which contribute to its spread. It can be quite difficult to eradicate once established.
