About

Red Dead-nettle is a common plant of roadside verges, waste grounds and field edges - anywhere the ground has been disturbed or cultivated. Like Yellow Archangel and other members of the 'dead'-nettle family, it doesn't have stinging leaves. Its crimson flowers appear from March to October.

How to identify

Looking similar to a Stinging Nettle, Red Dead-nettle is a downy annual with heart-shaped, toothed leaves and reddish, square stems. Dense whorls of pinky-red flowers appear up the stem; the flowers have a curved 'hood' and a 'lip'.

How can people help

Although they sometimes don't look especially wildlife-friendly, our roadside verges and waste grounds can provide valuable habitats for all kinds of plants and animals. The Wildlife Trusts get involved in different projects to help make these places as beneficial for wildlife as possible. We have a vision of a 'Living Landscape': a network of habitats and wildlife corridors across town and country, which are good for both wildlife and people. You can support this greener vision for the future by joining your local Wildlife Trust.

Papayas life for less than 10 years, there not true woody plants but rather giant herbaceous perennials. If topped the adventitious sprouts will be weak & will not produce quality fruit. this is so because the plant is spending the energy to re grow a new crown not fruit. It is best to plant a dwarf variety like dwarf Hawaiian Solo Red or just remove the papaya trees when they get to tall to harvest. Buy a new one or start from seed Papayas are easy 7 fast growing providing they receive no frost. Papayas do well here in my garden in central orange County CA 92705.

DALY: Use care when planting around septic drainfields  — Gwinnettdailypost.com
Shallow rooted annual and perennial herbaceous plants can be planted closer to the drain fields since they do not have invasive roots. Turfgrass can be grown over the drain field and is beneficial since it helps hold the soil in place.
