Yellow archangel

Lamium galeobdolon


Yellow archangel (a.k.a Artillery or Aluminium plant - I'm really curious about these names...) is a large-leaved perennial plant with underground runners, forming flowering massifs of about 50cm in height. It belongs to mnt family, Lamiaceae, an displays the typical square stems, opposite nettle-like leaves, and large yellow zygomorphic flowers, arranged in inflorescences of 3 to 8 flowers.


Common European wildflower, widespread throughout the continent and found in a variety of habitats. Here, found on edges of a beautiful Bagasse forest (deciduous, predominantly oak, forest) on France-Switzerland border, in a valley of lake Geneva, just in between Jura and Alps mountains ranges. Found growing in shade of trees bordering a walking path in between one agricultural field and a field kep as a pasture, and on banks of a small stream.
