Description

Forming a clump of stiff, leafy stems, this valuable late-season plant bears heads of curiously-shaped rich pink flowers resembling gaping mouths, hence the common name "Turtle Head". This lovely flower makes a very useful addition to every garden, flowering from late summer when most others have finished, and right into autumn.

Sowing Advice

For best results, sow immediately onto a good soil-based compost. Cover the seeds with fine grit or compost to approximately their own depth. They can be sown at any time, and germination can sometimes be quicker if kept at 15 to 20 degrees C. We sow most seeds in an unheated greenhouse and wait for natural germination, as many seeds have built-in dormancy mechanisms, often waiting for natural spring germination, hence giving them a full season of growth.
