Henbit deadnettle is a common weed of field edges and olive groves. The upright stems have whorls of leaves, which typically have no petioles but clasp the stem.It is collected as a wild herb and used in salads or soups; it is said to taste similar to kale; hens seem to enjoy eating it, hence the name henbit. The flowers are a rich source of nectar, attracting bees early in the year.

Lamium - Latin for lips referring to the two lipped flowers

Amplexicaule from Latin amplector - clasping + caule from Latin - stalk or stem
