A rather curiously shaped pink flower gives Chelone its common name of turtlehead and it is perhaps an easier way to remember its name too.This perennial will give colour and form to the late summer border, flowering from August -September, growing to an eventual height of 60cms. The showy flowers are borne in short clusters at the tops of the stems and will be in flower for weeks on end.
Product Code: PCHE101
Chelene need space to grow and although they are upright in habit, the underground runners need room to spread and grow. They prefer an open site but donít mind partial shade.Chelene grows best in deep, fertile, moist soil and will grow well in bog gardens and tolerates a heavier clay soil. Mulch the area well with organic matter in mid-spring once the new growth has appeared.
