White Turtlehead is a leafy-stemmed plant known for its hooded, snapdragon-like white flowers. It gets its name from the flower’s resemblance to a turtle’s beak. The leaves are coarsely toothed and dark green. This is an important native host plant for the beautiful Baltimore Checkerspot Butterfly (pictured above), but is attractive to many other pollinators. Once established, it gains tolerance to erosion and wet soil. White Turtlehead can be used in a rain garden or to naturalize an area.
