This Nettle patch was found in an open meadow area surrounded by eucalyptus trees, willow, oak & sycamore; they were growing intermixed with Mallow, Wild Radish, Mustard, Veronica and grasses. They were growing on a gentle North-facing slope. Across the pathway from this patch, about 30 to 40 feet north, there is a small seasonal riparian or drainage gully with more willows. --R. Eckert

FYI - Saw one Red Admiral Butterfly in Irvine, Orange County, California yesterday in my yard, there are lots of nettles growing in a riparian area nearby.

It was nectaring on my tropical Milkweed, I do not know what direction it was traveling.

It has been unusually cold and rainy here, so I was surprised to see it already, this is the first Red Admiral I have ever seen in my garden.
