This is a white flower growing in western illinois in a disturbed area next to a creekbed and a hardwood forest. It was in bloom in early June. Can someone help me with what it is. The illinois wildflower all isn't picking up any hits for it. Other plants near it are milkweed, daisy fleabane, orange daylily, and Michigan Lily.

I was going to guess foxglove beardstongue (Penstemon digitalis) but the flowers don't look quite right.

Thank you! I think you pegged it. I don't know why the id database didn't come up with it but I knew it would be easy for someone on here. I dont think my photo resolution showed detail well.

You're welcome!
Actually I did find it on an IL wildflower website but can't remember which one.

frost - no problem. I like to keep my plant database active. Smiling I actually started some from seed this year.
