I had a pink Turtlehead which I liked, so I bought this white to complement it and just planted it this year. It is a very pretty plant, but very unassuming and certainly not an attention-grabber. It does need some color nearby to show it off to best advantage. It has done quite well in a very moist garden area with very little attention and I am hoping it returns next year.
