Many fragrant, white, trumpet-shaped flowers bloom in heads at ends of long stalks in upper leaf axils.
Throughout most of its range this is the only Sand Verbena with white flowers. A fragrans, also called Snowball or Sweet Sand Verbena, has sweet-smelling flowers, but lacks pads atop the wings of the fruit and is often taller, with stems up to 3 (90 cm). It grows in eastern Montana and western North and South Dakota, south to eastern Utah, northeastern Arizona, southern New Mexico, and western and central Texas. White Sand Verbena (A. mellifera), from eastern Washington and Oregon to southern Idaho, has nearly scentless flowers.
