Description

Chelone is a genus of perennial herbaceous plants native to eastern North America. The name turtlehead is due to the flowers resemblance to the head of a turtle. The pink flowers are held on strong stems. Plants are drought tolerant, and easy to grow, forming tidy clumps.

Type: Hardy perennial

Height: 36"

Location: Sun

Hardiness zones: 4-9

Seeds per pack: 15

Germination: Start these seeds right away to preserve viability, no matter the time of year. Sow the seeds just under the surface of a sterile seed-start mix, and water in. Then cover them with plastic and place in a fridge for 5-6 weeks. Be sure they stay moist. After the cold stratification period they are then brought back to room temperature for them to germinate. Germination is generally within 60 days after the warming period, though they could take a few months. If possible, the best location for sowing in March, April and May, is in cold frame or a cold greenhouse where they will receive the cold period and fluctuating temperatures naturally.
