Chelone lyonii 'Hot Lips'


'Hot Lips' Turtlehead has clear pink flowers in July, shiny green foliage, and is wet site tolerant. It spreads slowly to make a large patch eventually, so it can be used as a tall groundcover.  Chelone lyonii 'Hot Lips' differs from the straight species because it has darker green foliage, red stems and stronger pink flowers.  This is a wonderful introduction selected by Native Plant guru Dale Hendricks, which he named after a co-worker as a nickname.
