Ground Ivy


Ground Ivy shares many of the characteristics of both the White and Red Deadnettles that it is closely related to. Like the White Deadnettle the flowers are in whorls around the stem and the leaves resemble those of the Red Deadnettle. Unlike either the plant has creeping runners and is softly hairy.

The flowers are blue-violet, appearing in spring and early summer. Very common everywhere in woodland, hedges and waste ground.
