Large 1 inch long white or pink-tinged flowers are primarily pollinated by
bumblebees. The distinct tubular shape allows them to reach nectar/pollen when other insects can't. Turtlehead's nectar contains aucubin and catalpol, special chemicals that act as a natural medicine for bees, helping them reduce parasites. Also, a larval host plant for Common Buckeye and Baltimore Checkerspot butterflies.
