Folio 36v, Henbit or Deadnettle (Lamium amplexicaule), is classified as a noxious weed. Its flowers appear in the early spring in warm areas like the Mediterranean countries. This annual has square hairy stems, opposite rounded leaves with lobed margins and pink to purple flowers. It closely resembles a stinging nettle but without the sting. The early shoots and leaves can be cooked and used as a green vegetable.
