Prunella vulgaris alba, or White Heal All, is native to the entire continental United States. It grows in open woods, as well as woodland edges, as well as in lawns, fields, meadows and prairies. It blooms in mid spring to early fall, often blooming several times, or in lawns, coming back from being mowed with new flowers. It has small white flowers that resemble orchids with their fringed edges.

This is not an actual different species, but is a variant of the original species, a sort of "albino" that can occur anywhere that this plant occurs.
