Henbit (sometimes called henbit deadnettle or deadnettle) is a pretty nasty weed, but it blooms with these gorgeous purple flowers in the winter. They are all over my yard currently! In spite of its weedy status, this is an important source of nectar for the earliest bees to emerge each year, thus I leave them alone in my yard. If bees can use them, they can stay.
