WhiteTurtlehead (Chelone glabra)

  • I’m a native of New York state and Tompkins County, NY.


    My flower resembles a turtle head.


    Because of the shape of my flower it takes strong bumblebees to push their way into my bloom to pollinate me.


    Hummingbirds visit my flowers too.


    I’m the preferred host of the Baltimore Checkerspot Butterfly
