Red dead nettle (Lamium purpureum) flowers are pink to purple, tubular, and occur in axillary whorls near the shoot apex.

I have observed that often flowers occur 6 at a time, originating just below the first couple of leaf pairs.

Flowers, specifically the corolla, are pink, tubular, and composed of two lips.  The upper lip is hairy and arched, while the lower lip is spotted, 3-lobed, and bearded.
