I was watching the butterflies at Hampton COurt last night and was reminded about how nettles are so vital to butterflies. I love butteflies but hate nettles (horrible stingy itchy things!!) It did occur to me though that I do love the flowers and softness of the deadnettle varieties. Does anyone know if these are as useful to butterflies and wildlife as the stingy horrible kind? I'll happily let those roam in a patch of my garden if they are.
