White Deadnettle

On Saturday my family came over for a visit and as the weather was so glorious we were out in the garden. On a stroll through the orchard, my brother-in-law remarked that he didn’t know nettles had white flowers. This variety of nettle is called the white deadnettle.

  1. Hi!
    I have been searching around Portland Oregon for White Dead Nettle. I have had absolutely no luck!
    My mother-in-law was prescribed a natural remedy tea including White Dead Nettle
    ( flower, not the leaf) for gynecology issues. She is from Germany and has been having it shipped here.
    I am interested in growing it here, or buying it dried if that is possible. I don’t mind ordering it online or paying an herbarium to ship it to me.
    If you could point me in the right direction, we’d be so appreciative!
    Thank you!
