Chelone - Turtleheads

Brightening the garden for weeks in late summer and fall, Chelone (Turtleheads) are herbaceous perennials noted for their bushy foliage mound of dark green leaves that remains handsome all season long and their hooded flowers shaped like turtle heads just emerging from their shell. These North American natives are at home planted in shady and moist areas. They combine well with other late-season bloomers and are rarely bothered by insects or disease.
