Rare nettle plant discovery in Amsterdam city

Urtica membranacea

A few weeks ago, in early January 2015, Dutch botanist Baudewijn Odé was looking for plants, flowering in winter.

In the Pijp neighbourhood, not far from the Amsterdam city center, he found flowering plants of a rare species: Urtica membranacea. This is a Mediterranean plant, which had only been found a few times before in the Netherlands.
