Designing with Stinging Nettle




  • USDA Hardiness Zone: 4-8
    AHS Heat Zone: No reliable information available.
    Chill Requirement: No reliable information available.

    Plant Type: Herbaceous Perennial
    Leaf Type: Deciduous, but can be “evergreen” in areas with mild winters
    Forest Garden Use: Herbaceous Layer, Ground Cover Layer
    Cultivars/Varieties: Many subspecies and varieties, but no significant development

    Pollination: Plants are dioecious, meaning they have either male or female flowers (hence the scientific name: dioica). Both male and female plants (typically a 1:8 ratio) are needed to produce seeds.
    Flowering: Summer

    Life Span:
    No reliable information available, but not really needed. These plants spread so easily with runners and seed, that as soon as one plant dies, another will take its place.

    The spreading nature of the Stinging Nettle makes it a pretty good ground cover…
    …but also tricky to eradicate.
