Turtleheads are native wildflowers that adapt beautifully to garden conditions. In this variety, plants form an upright, bushy mound of green foliage, bearing upright stems of large white hooded flowers beginning in late summer. Especially beautiful when planted next to the more common pink Chelone obliqua. Best in a moist or wet site, this also adapts well to average border conditions. Terrific at the waterside. Excellent for cutting. Showy and long lived. Attractive to butterflies.
