Turtlehead…Short spikes of rosy-pink flowers that look like a turtle’s head with its mouth open delight children and other passersby in late summer and early fall. This is the kind of plant that makes a great backdrop for shorter plants in the garden all season long, and suddenly catches everyone’s attention when it’s in bloom.  It does spread…but easly controlled.  Can become almost like a mimi-shrub…it’s a lovely plant in several areas of your garden and it is a host plant for butterflies.
