This is the more unusual white flowered form of our native turtlehead. Chelone has dark green foliage on a 20" tall clump. The clump will eventually widen to several feet. In late summer and early fall, the clumps are topped with white snapdragon like flowers...tolerates wet or dry conditions...great for blending late season color into the garden.
