USDA Zone: 3-9

Turtleheads are native wildflowers that adapt beautifully to garden conditions. In this selection, plants form an upright, bushy mound of shiny green foliage, bronzy-green early in the season. In late summer, plants form upright stems of large rosy-pink hooded flowers. 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. Plants are easily divided in spring.
