Yellow Archangel

Lamium galeobdolon


Yellow archangel (a.k.a Artillery or Aluminium plant - I'm really curious how these came to use...) is a large-leaved perennial plant with underground runners, forming flowering massifs of about 50 cm in height. It belongs to mint family, Lamiaceae, and 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 inside beautiful and protected 'Bois du Faisan' forest (somewhat mixed, but predominantly deciduous forest, a lot of oak). The forest is in the lake Geneva lowland, just in between Jura and Alps mountains ranges. Found growing in shade of trees bordering a walking path, close to the river banks.
