White Deadnettle and nettles

The White Dead-Nettle bears a strong resemblance to the
Stinging Nettle, for which it may easily be mistaken.
The White dead nettle has a square hollow stem, making
it easy to distinguish from the Stinging Nettle.
In April the White Dead-nettle starts to flower.
And its flowers are very different fro those of the
Stinging Nettle.
