Common name white turtlehead
Family plantaginaceae
Life cycle perennial (Z5-8)
Flowers white (late summer)
Size 4-5'
Light sun-part shade

Taller-growing than the C. lyonii we've grown for years; this one is new to our garden. This cultivar's foliage is supposed to be very dark early in the season - we'll see for ourselves next spring.

This plant used to grow in our garden, but it slipped away...
