Cute, colorful, compact - and so beneficial to butterflies! In fact, these nifty bright pink flowers also attract hummingbirds and other pollinators as well. When it blooms in summer, you'll see that turtlehead comes by its name earnestly, as the tubular blooms peek out adorably from the green calyx that surrounds it. 'Hot Lips' brings brighter, bigger flowers, and stronger stems, than other selections of turtlehead, making it showier in the garden without losing its appeal to wildlife.

This North American native perennial thrives in moist, even wet soils, and can grow in some shade as well. Deer resistant and makes a good cut flower.

I love this plant and decided to get 3 different varieties. I live in Minnesota and the plants did suffer distress during shipping. I followed instructions and when planted they have not fully recovered as of yet. We will see.
