    Chelone Obliqua or Pink Turtlehead

    Turtleheads are native wildflowers that adapt beautifully to garden conditions and will attract butterflies.
    In this species, plants form an upright, bushy mound of green foliage, bearing upright stems of large bright-pink hooded flowers beginning in late summer. Best in a moist or wet site, this also adapts well to average border conditions. Terrific at the waterside and is showy and long-lived. Excellent for cutting.
