The Nettle’s Silver Sparkle variegatum is similar to Herman’s Pride but the leaves are completely silver with deep green veins. Appearing to have a metallic finish, the leaves reflect sunlight and sparkle in the shade. Variegatum’s leaves are smaller, more narrow and pointed.

  • Botanical Name: Solanum elaeagnifolium
  • Common Names: Silver Sparkle

Here’s some information about the plant:

  1. Appearance: The “Silver Sparkle” variety of stinging nettle is prized for its attractive foliage. It features leaves that are deeply serrated along the edges and have a striking silver-white variegation or mottling pattern on the surface. The stems and undersides of the leaves may also exhibit a purple or reddish hue.
  2. Growing Conditions: Stinging nettle, including the “Silver Sparkle” cultivar, thrives in moist, fertile soil and partial shade to full sun. It can adapt to a wide range of soil types but prefers rich, well-draining soil. While it can tolerate dry conditions, consistent moisture is beneficial for optimal growth.
  3. Uses: Despite its reputation for causing skin irritation upon contact due to the presence of stinging hairs, stinging nettle is valued for its culinary and medicinal properties. The leaves can be harvested and cooked to make nutritious soups, teas, or steamed greens. Additionally, stinging nettle is used in traditional herbal medicine for its potential anti-inflammatory, diuretic, and antioxidant properties.
  4. Cultivation: “Silver Sparkle” stinging nettle can be propagated from seeds or by dividing established plants. When growing from seeds, sow them directly into the garden bed in the spring after the threat of frost has passed. Alternatively, divisions can be taken from mature plants in early spring or fall and replanted in suitable locations.
  5. Maintenance: Stinging nettle is generally easy to grow and requires minimal maintenance once established. Regular watering during dry periods and occasional fertilization with a balanced fertilizer can promote healthy growth. To prevent the plant from spreading aggressively, consider planting it in containers or in designated areas of the garden.
  6. Harvesting: When harvesting stinging nettle leaves for culinary or medicinal purposes, wear gloves to protect your skin from the stinging hairs. Harvest young, tender leaves in the spring before the plant flowers for the best flavor and texture. Avoid harvesting leaves from plants that grow in contaminated areas or have been treated with pesticides.
  7. Potential Benefits: Stinging nettle has been traditionally used to treat various ailments, including allergies, arthritis, and urinary tract infections. It contains vitamins, minerals, and bioactive compounds that contribute to its potential health benefits. However, it’s essential to consult with a healthcare professional before using stinging nettle for medicinal purposes, especially if you have existing medical conditions or are taking medications.

Overall, “Silver Sparkle” stinging nettle is an attractive and versatile plant that can be grown for its ornamental value as well as its culinary and medicinal uses. With proper care and precautions, it can be a valuable addition to your garden or landscape.
