500 Turtlehead flower Seeds
This native wildflower has unique tubular blossoms that resemble the head of a turtle. A host of common names also compare these flowers to snakes, fish, or shells. The genus name "Chelone" means "tortoise," referring to the Greek myth of a nymph named Chelone who had the misfortune of being transformed into a turtle as a punishment for her insolence. Native Americans once valued this plant as a medicinal herb with cleansing and stimulating effects; when used as an herb it is called Balmony, and has a sharp, tea-like flavor. The stunning Baltimore Checkerspot butterfly frequents this plant, an important larval host and source of nectar.
For best results, direct sow in late fall just below the surface of the soil. For spring planting, mix the seed with moist sand and store it in the refrigerator for 100-120 days before direct sowing.
