Stinging nettle

janleecatJuly 3, 2014

This plant has popped up in a few of my container gardens. I went to pull it out and my hand stung. I was hoping someone could verify stinging nettle and is it very invasive?

Yes - Urtica dioica. Spreads by seeds and running roots but not a problem if you just pull it up and compost it now.
