Plant Description

Pink Turtlehead (Chelone Galbra) also known as Rose Turtlehead, Red Turtlehead or Turtle Head Plant, has lovely, glossy-green foliage with serrated leaves and a bushy, upright habitat. The word 'Chelone' translates to the word tortoise and some think the bloom resembles an open mouthed turtle head. This beautiful plant attracts butterflies and hummingbirds to your garden.

 Planting Instructions


Plant in your terrestrial garden using moist, humusy soil with plenty of compost. Plant in full sun or part sun / part shade. It is important for you to keep the soil moist in your terrestrial garden. When planting for pond use, use loam soil and plant in containers and place in full sun or part sun / part shade. Great additions to stream beds, ponds, bog areas or rain gardens. Roots may be in water but foliage must be kept above the surface of the water. Spreads by rhizome.


Pondmegastore Tip Not only does Turtlehead attract butterflies and hummingbirds--it is also a host plant for butterflies.
