Member of the Lamiaceae family. Smooth hedgenettle reaches a height of 1-3 feet, and it grows in wet areas and moist woodlands across the central and eastern United States. Its leaves are opposite in arrangement, ovate in shape, and crenate along their edges. The leaves and stem of this plant are mostly hairless, but some hair can be found along stem ridges and central leaf veins. Flowers are light pink/white in color and are divided into two lobes: the upper lobe serves as a hood, while the lower lobe is separated into three segments that serve as landing pads for insects. Smooth hedgenettle is typically unbranched and ends in a spike of these lobed flowers. Blooms June-September.
