Laportea canadensis / Wood Nettle


Why sell a plant that stings? Because it is one of the best perennial greens on the continent, delicious and deeply nutritive. More tender and with a longer harvest season than the related stinging nettle, this is an excellent permaculture plant. Host plant for the Red Admiral butterfly. Wood nettle is a colonial species of rich, moist woods, mostly found along rivers and streams.
