Good day to all.

I usually go into my yard to grab the buns a handful of greens & flowers to munch and forage throughout the house and I have a lot of heal-all (photo'd) growing.
Is this a bunny safe green?
I know it's great for humans, but I can't find anything regarding bunny consumption.
Assistance please 😁IMG_20200727_110717463.jpg

Ps.
Does anyone else de-thorne their buns blackberry leaves?

I do because I know how soft those tiny little licker's are, and I'd hate for them to get cut up. So I just take them off 🤷

That is purple nettle a close relative to dead nettle. It is safe for rabbits to eat. Dosiedoe eats it with preference to other forage.

It is called "heal-all" here in BC, Canada.
The indigenous use them in their medicine and don't have any stingers on the leaves or stems.

Regardless, I can't find anything about it for bunnies.
