Purple Dead Nettle is an invasive plant (weed) that's scrawled across fields here making for a beautiful scene as far as your eye can see. I spotted this one at the nature preserve last week. It's a herbaceous flowering plant whose flowers and leaves are edible. Purple dead nettle also attracts bees who take the nectar from its flowers for food. It can easily be mistaken for Henbit whose flowers and leaves are similar to those of the purple dead nettle.
