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.

Brand:  Brookside Nursery
Supplied as:  1 Bulb
Eventual Height:  60cm ( 24")
Primary Flower Colour:  Pink
Flowering Period:  August - September

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 don’t 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.
