Red deadnettle may grow as an annual or a biennial. It is a hairy plant that branches from the base. The leaves often have a purple-grey tinge to them. The upper-most leaves can become deep purple-red when the plant grows in areas where it is more exposed to strong sunlight. The plant blooms from March to October, and the flowers are pink-purple in colour. The flowers and the leaves are concentrated towards the top of the stem. Young plants have edible tops and leaves that are used in salads or used as spring vegetables.
