Hello! I've recently stumbled across this week and now I've been seeing it everywhere. I can't seem to figure out what the species nor genus this is. These photos were takes in the Atlanta metropolitan area. Any and all help is appreciated.

Prettier than your average weed - a Henbit relative, perhaps?

I agree, it looks like Henbit (Lamium species) possibly Henbit (Lamium amplexicaule) is found in many parts of the country. Compare to these photos from our database:

Thank you giving me not only the genus and an a presumed species, but also additional information! After looking through the genus I found this Purple Dead Nettle (Lamium purpureum) . Thanks for the ID
