Description Planting Instructions Tips
 

Aka “Stinging Nettle” because of the skin irritating “hairs” on its leaves, this herbaceous perennial is a prized multi-use medicinal and multi-function plant. Tap root loads up new leaves with vitamins, minerals and nutrients. When cooked, leaves lose their hairs and make an early season nutritional treat. Tea used as a whole body tonic. Also a pollinator friendly dye plant and fiber source for cordage and cloth. Permaculture, polyculture and homestead plant.
