Chelone glabra 


A member of the Figwort family, this unique plant has lance shaped leaves and lovely large white flowers that resemble a turtles head. Wonderful for that moist to wet area as it likes semi shady swamps and riparian zones. Preffered food plant for the Baltimore Checkerspot. Chelone has been used medicinally as a tonic, laxative and to treat liver disorders and skin sores. A good source of nectar for butterflies.
