Chelone obliqua 'Ieniemienie'


Chelone 'Ieniemienie' is a dwarf turtlehead with pink flowers in summer and a bit of a crazy name. Sound it out. Is that how we spell that?

Chelone 'Ieniemienie' is a very short variety of turtlehead growing to only 10 inches which means you could even use it as a groundcover! Mid pink flowers will top the short stems from early summer to fall. Easy to grow. Performs best in evenly moist conditions with fertile loamy soil and abundant organic matter.
