Known for its clusters of white tubular flowers that resemble turtle heads. The name is derived from the Greek chelone, meaning “tortoise.” Flowers appear on top of stout stems with shiny green leaves in late summer and fall. Grows best in part to full sun sites with moist soil rich in organic matter. A great addition to your wildflower garden, attracting bees and hummingbirds.
