Plant Quiz Answer: Galeopsis tetrahit

No one correctly guessed the most recent plant quiz, Galeopsis tetrahit, common hemp nettle. Below are photos of the plant in flower.



The genus name Galeopsis means "looks like a weasel," which is supposedly a reference to the flowers. I don't see it. This plant was found in Superior, Wisconsin, but as I said earlier, it is non-native and found throughout much of northern North America.



Since no one got this quiz correct, do I post the next one?

Damn...I walked past some of that in the UP a few weeks ago but obviously paid little heed to its appearance. I suggest posting another plant quiz!
