Hemp-Nettle Card

Hemp-Nettle Card


Galeopsis versicolor & Galeopsis tetrahit


The original watercolour was painted by Sophia in August 1905 after discovery 'on a roadside near Tunstall, Yorkshire.'  Large-flowered Hemp-nettle is more usually found on arable land, especially peaty soil, and is often associated with potatoes; bumblebees love it, but it is poisonous to humans.  Common Hemp-nettle is found in woods and on hedge banks. 


Our rectangular cards measure 130mm x 175mm and are left blank for your own personal message. Sophia's original watercolour is carefully reproduced on 320gsm Vellum Ivory card and comes complete with a bespoke 135gsm mid green, peel-and-seal envelope.


Produced in the UK, both card and envelope are made with paper that is FSC accredited and can be easily recycled.
