Laportea canadensis (Linnaeus) Weddell. Wood-nettle. Phen: May-Aug; late Jul-Oct. Hab: Moist, nutrient-rich forests, seepage swamps, especially abundant in cove forests in the Mountains and bottomlands in the Piedmont. Dist: NS and se. MB south to Panhandle FL and OK.

Origin/Endemic status: Native

Other Comments: By mid-summer, Laportea often becomes the aspect dominant in rich, moist cove forests of the mountains (especially those with extensive seepage), visually replacing the diverse spring flora. The stinging hairs can penetrate pants made of light-weight or loosely woven fabrics.
