Chelone obliqua Tiny Tortuga™ 'Armitpp02'
Common Name: Turtlehead
A tiny turtlehead with all the flower power of its taller brothers, this native cultivar features uniquely shaped, hot pink blooms atop lustrous dark green leaves with a bronzy sheen. Flowers reminiscent of turtles' mouths persist from mid-summer into fall, a favorite of butterflies but distasteful to deer. Its very compact habit is a great choice for mixed containers, or let it spread ever so slowly in the landscape along pond and stream edges, rain gardens or perennial borders.
Height: 18-24 Inches
Spread: 12-16 Inches
USDA Hardiness Zone: 4-9
