Lamium purpureum aka red dead nettle is in the mint family. It’s little leaves and flowers are edible. It’s good for cleansing, good for the kidneys, full of antioxidants, and good for allergies. It can also help stop bleeding and help heal a wound. #antioxidant #nutritive #astringent #diaphoretic #diuretic #antiallergy #antiinflammatory #purgative #styptic #botanicalmedicine #herbalmedicine #backyardmedicine #lamiumpurpureum #reddeadnettle #purpledeadnettle

Representative sample of the herbs gathered this morning from the yard. Perfect for a Spring wellness tonic. #horsetail #equisetum #nettle #urticadioica #dandelion #taraxacumofficinale #reddeadnettle #lamiumpurpureum #blackberry #rubus #springtime #springtonic #herbalmedicine #herbaltea #backyardmedicine

Red Dead Nettles are looking voluptuous this year.
They’re healthy, good looking, don’t sting and they also go by the name Purple Archangel 😈

Road side verges are often overlooked. They have the capability of being incredibly diverse if managed properly and I don't think we make the most of them. They can be an amazing habitat for pollinators and other invertebrates, small mammals, birds and a huge variety of plants. We can definitely do more to conserve these beautiful spaces #roadsideverges #verges #habitats #wildflowers #reddeadnettle #ecology #biodiversity #ukwildlife #ukwildlifeimages #plantlife #wildflowerhour #ontheverge #invertebrates #pollinators

Views on my walk today were obscured by low cloud 🙄 The red dead-nettle (lamium purpureum) was out in force though ☺️ A member of the mint family & loved for its nectar by bumblebees 💛

I figured out what it's called! It's a red dead-nettle... kind of a violent name...

Wild flowers in the garden. They will have to be cleared out to make way for the vegetables, but they are quite pretty while they last.

Red Dead Nettle (Lamium purpureum) gets the ‘red’ part of its name due to its red pollen, often seen on the tops of bees heads 🐝🤗 how cute is that 🤗 It’s spring leaves are edible & have been used in sauces & salads... It’s another non native that was introduced to the British Isles, a mutual adoption & it’s now a thriving common site..
