Stinging Nettle Flourishing Now

Posted by romeethredge on April 1, 2015

I’m seeing some of Stinging Nettle that is flourishing now in pastures. It is mainly found in shady areas. Don’t touch it!!

Here’s some I saw last week in a pasture, under an oak tree on the fencerow. It’s the lighter green growth here mixed in with the grass and clover.  I tried to tell this heifer to avoid it but she wouldn’t listen. Go to my earlier post for a closeup view of this nasty weed, Stinging nettle closeup. They say it has some medicinal properties, but I’d stay away from it.
