Overview
White Turtlehead features a tall spiky flower, similar to a snapdragon, but with a tighter, boxier bloom that upon closer inspection does look just like a turtle's head! Set against dark green foliage, these extraordinary blooms come into their own in late summer, when many other plants have passed. Makes an excellent addition to natural gardens and along streams. Turtlehead is deer resistant, attracts butterflies and thrives in part shade to full sun. (Chelone glabra)
