Artist's Description

Easy to mistake this flowering plant for a stingy nettle but it is a kind of lamium or dead nettle. Therefore a different plant family to the stingy nettle (Urticaceae). The tiny flowers, about 5-10 mm high, looked very like little orchids with hairs.

Wikipedia: “Lamiastrum galeobdolon , commonly known as Yellow Archangel, is a widespread wildflower in Europe, and has been introduced elsewhere as a garden plant. It displays the zygomorphic flower morphology, opposite leaves, and square stem typical of the mint family, Lamiaceae. The flowers are soft yellow and borne in axial clusters, with a prominent ‘hood’ (the dorsal lobe of the corolla) similar to that of Lamium.”

Location: Near the lake and swimming pool, Bad Groenenbach, Bavaria, Germany.
