Stinging Nettle is a perennial native that blooms year round here in Florida. The plant is covered in stinging hairs that release a caustic irritant. The leaf of Stinging Nettle resembles that of the maple tree. The hairy 3-5 lobed dark green leaves are up to 6 inches long and appear alternate on a hairy stem. The small star-shaped white flowers are 1/2 to 3/4 inches wide and are loosely clustered at the end of the stalk.
