Turtleheads are native wildflowers that adapt beautifully to garden conditions. In this selection, plants form an upright, bushy mound of thick, dark green foliage. In late summer, plants produce upright stems of large dark 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.
