White Deadnettle (White Dead Nettle, White Archangel)
Safe to Feed
Common Name: White Deadnettle (White Dead Nettle, White Archangel)
Latin Name:Lamium album
Family Name: Lamiaceae/Labiatae
All of the Deadnettles listed are safe to feed to tortoises, as are other members of this family (see Yellow Archangel and Deadnettle).
The young flowerless shoots of White Deadnettle look strikingly similar to Stinging Nettle (but do not have the sting). This plant comes into its own with a majestic crown of white flowers and is safe to feed and plant in the tortoise enclosure. As the name suggests, the flowers are only found in white.
