Lamium album, commonly called white nettle or white dead-nettle,but also known as Blind nettle, stingless nettle, archangel. White dead nettle is an herbaceous flowering perennial plant that belongs to the mint family (Lamiaceae,) native throughout Europe and Asia, growing in a variety of habitats from open grassland to woodland, generally on moist, fertile soils.
The alternate leaves are broad, heart-shaped and coarsely serrated. They look somewhat similar to the leaves of stinging nettle (Urtica dioica) but do not sting hence the English common name “dead nettle”. These two plants belong to different plant families and are not related.
