This is Wood Nettle, Laportea canadensis, not an Urtica but in the Urtica family. I’m not sure if there are any medicinal uses for it but I like that the flowers appearance are similar to Stinging Nettles. And it has stingers too! Anyone have any experience with this plant? #woodnettles #laporteacanadensis #herbalrootszine

In my #happyplace with the #woodnettles under a canopy of swaying trees filled with a chorus of birdsong next to a gently babbling brook 💚🌱

Lush and beautiful wood nettles, Laportea canadensis, so beautifully line the paths in the woods. I recently discovered how absolutely delicious they are. A cup of tea made with the leaves is so aromatic and florally like a cup of jasmine tea. I can’t wait to experiment more with these fragrant nettles. #woodnettles #laporteacanadensis #nettletea

Yesterdays wild harvest of Wood Nettles! Dehydrating for winter.

Wood nettles and pheasant back mushrooms. I think I’ll make a nice little spring frittata! #woodnettles #laporteacanadensis #pheasantbackmushrooms #polyporussquamosus #frittataingredients #foraging

Oh hello dears 💚🌱 After harvesting these with bare hands last night, my generally-creaky fingers & joints felt so free & rejuvenated — #forestmedicine in so many ways. These succulent tops went into our veggie curry, a #slowfood dinner date with lovely, kindred foragers @thallifoods @averym10 @edwardblain #nettles #woodnettles #creekside #wildfood #ironwoman #gratitude

Goodbye #ramps (yellowing in the background), hello #woodnettles (green in the foreground).

Loose herb tea tonight! Love to make large batches...

The weather outside may be frightful, but there’s lots of activity in the soil and in the trees in the relative stillness, and more to come. Soon there will spring edibles! Pictured here: morels, dandelion flowers, wood nettles, ramps, wood violet leaves and flowers, fiddleheads, and hemlock buds. Speaking of buds... forage responsibly, buds!

#todaysgather roses and strawberries from the garden and #woodnettles for a friend at work. #monarda #melilot #euthamia #milkweed and #pycnanthemum for dinner and dried herbs. The ones I can depend on. Morels will leave you high and dry but nettles always have your back.

I believe this is Wood Nettle. The leaves are alternate (as opposed to opposite one another like Stinging Nettle). I think the leaves appear nearly identical to Stinging Nettle, and there are fine white hairs up and down the stem (and on the underside of the leaves). It was found in a moist wooded area (by a creek) with many others in a cluster. It seems all signs point to Wood Nettle...can anyone chim in for sure?
