The nettle, more commonly known as “stinging nettle”, is a herbaceous (herb) flowering perennial (lives more than two years). It is native to Europe, Asia, North Africa, and North America.
“Nettle” is a general term for around thirty to forty-five flowering species in the genus Urtica in the family Urticaceae. They are mainly herbaceous perennial plants, but a few are annual and some are shrubs. The most notorious species in the group is the stinging nettle, which has fine hairs on its stem that, when they come into contact with the skin of an animal, release irritating chemicals that give the skin that painful itchy feeling. Nettle also has medicinal potential; it has been used to treat urinary problems and prostate disorders, among others.
A “Nettle” is the common name for 30-45 species of flowering plants from Urtica genus. The stinging nettle is the most prominent species of the genus. Nettles are generally herbacious perennials.
