Description

Chelone Glabra- White Turtlehead

Chelone Glabra- White Turtlehead, is a white-flowered plant that contains just a hint of pink within the peddles. The flowers resemble a turtle head because of their shape, and its name originated from the Greek word chelone, which translates to a tortoise. The delightful white flowers can get to around one to one and a half inches in size and have a touch of pretty pink that bees love to get pollen from. The height of these plants can be easily controlled or managed by clipping down the edges of the stems during the springtime and being sure it is not planted in a heavily shaded area where it will reach for sunlight. This relatively slow spreading plant can reach heights of two to three feet tall and has a spread of only around one and a half to two and a half feet.

It is a returning perennial that requires low maintenance, partial shade to the sunny location and will bloom from the late summer months into mid to late fall.

Chelone Glabra- White Turtlehead

The soil should be kept moderately wet, and the white turtlehead prefers an enriched leaf mulch. It is native to the United States and attracts many different types of beautiful hummingbirds and butterflies, and when planted in the springtime, the seeds will sprout in about a year. Flowering can take about two years, but it is well worth the beauty it produces, and the Checkerspot Butterfly from Baltimore depends on this plant for survival and food. The turtlehead plant is a pollinator and will grow in zones three through eight. High moisture swamps, wetlands and lakes or ponds are great placement areas for this plant to flourish naturally and staking, or maintenance is not always necessary when grown in optimal conditions and fertile soil.

It usually develops on the eastern side of the United States and is native to the state of Minnesota.
