Mexican Hedge Nettle
The Mexican hedge nettle, contrary to its name, is a native member of the mint family found all along the west coast of North America from the California-Mexico border all the way north to Alaska. This one was photographed in the Hoh Rain Forest of Washington's Olympic Peninsula on a rare sunny late-August afternoon.
