White Turtlehead is named for its distinctive flowers which are said to resemble a turtle's head. This wetland plant will strongly prefer wet to moist soils in full to mostly sun. The blooms are pollinated mostly by bumblebees, which have the size and strength to pry open the bloom and reach the nectar inside. White Turtlehead is a preferred host plant for the beautiful Baltimore Checkerspot butterfly.
