Item details

Chelone glabra (white turtlehead): Turtlehead is named for its pretty white blossoms which resemble a turtle head poking out from its shell. The white flowers, bloom in late summer on 36" upright stems with glossy, deep green serrated foliage. It is an important host plant providing larval food for the lovely orange and brown Baltimore Checkerspot butterfly. Its nectar also attracts other butterflies, bumblebees, and hummingbirds. They need rich, moist soil for best growth. Plant them in full sun if they have constant moisture, otherwise they are better in light sun or partial shade.
INTERESTING NOTES: Chelone (rhymes with "baloney") was a nymph in Greek mythology who insulted the gods by ridiculing or not attending (versions vary) the marriage of Zeus to Hera. The gods punished her by turning her into a turtle.
