The hairs are very fine, they do not sting. But there is a variety of nettles that are not stinging I believe, I think I read that somewhere. Maybe they are some perennial flower the previous owner of this property planted there. I just thought they looked awfully close to a nettle. I don't know. I am located in Taylorsville KY, maybe that might help?

Thanks for the suggestion, I will look at the stems later when I get home. Thanks!
