Purple Deadnettle

Lamium purpureum


similar to Embers spotting: Jakubko suggested Glechoma hederacea for Ember's spotting so that was my first guess. Thanks Jakubko for the extra info and suggestion!


df? - location not exact, I can't find it on the map. might not even be within a few miles but I suspect this is a widespread and common species anyway? no sample

yes, it's bottom petal (I translated from Croatian), at Lamium purpureum honey lip is turned down and has the pink pattern, I think it' really L. purpureum, 99,9% sure.
And the second spotting u spotted next day is Glechoma hederacea, it has blue patterns on honey lip that stand horizontal and has more rounded leaves...(my professional english is not so good, hope u understand :D) u can move questionnaire :)

brilliant, thanks! Is the 'honey lip' the bottom petal with the patterns on? If that's the case I think I found some Glechoma hederacea the next day... !?

this looks to me like Lamium purpureum by the flowers, Glechoma hederacea has honey lip more exposed forward, now u can compare :)
