This stately wildflower was growing in quite a few places we went in County Clare. Does anyone know the name of it?
Sorry I can't help you with the ID but it makes for an interesting capture.
It's a nettle but with slight purplier flowers than usual so maybe something similar. Did you touch it? That would have been the decider
Yes it looks as if it is from the nettle family but perhaps not the stinging variety.
We call these stinging nettles, have seen them with this type of flower, if you get stung by one the old remidy was to rub a Dock leaf on the sting, great capture Joline
Lovely image Joline.
Never seen a nettle grow quite this tall but then in the Emerald Isle there is plenty of moisture so could well be. Any way it's made a lovely subject for your camera Joline.
Nice plant and picture
I would say it is a stinging nettle, Joline, you should have touched it and found out Carol
I have seen these leaves here-- but the flower is different--- likely another nettle--
Its a large juicy nettle you will be itching by now. rub it with a dock leaf should be growing next to it.
Lovely shot of it though, I sometimes make nettle tea.
its a jaggy nettle as we Scots would call it makes for a good capture Joline
Makes a beautiful picture Joline
No idea what it is Joline but it makes a lovely image.
Definately a nettle Joline, but no idea what type.
Many a sting I had from these as a child in Donegal!
Effective as f/g interest in this image from Co. Clare.
Yes,looks like a nettle to me Joline.
And I bet it makes a nice juicy nettle wine too !!
Yes it's a common Nettle.The male and female plant has different flowers,but I am not sure if this is a male or female
a great image
I think the male and female flowers are usually both found on the same plant, but I'm not 100% certain.
glad to be NO 30
Never seen anything like that , Joline , but nettle it propably is and a fine image in any case ! --- Jukka.
