Some posters talked about henbit. Others talked about dead nettle. Had me totally confused, so I called on my friend Google. He knows everything. He said they are the same thing, just different names. Now I know what folks on here are talking about.  ;D

I'm going to have to disagree with that one. I think henbit is different than dead nettle. Dead nettle leaves are variegated, heart shaped. Henbit leaves look a little like parsley to me. I haven't seen any dead nettle around me but loads of henbit.

Here is a picture I found that compares.

There are plenty of them in my yard---I have never seen a bee visitng their flowers (contrary to what's written in the Wiki-pedia article).

They are working them in my yard. Not real heavily, but there are many things blooming now.
