Tiny Tortuga is a dwarf Turtlehead with pink-rose blooms. This plant will thrive in partial to full sun, producing blooms from mid to late summer. Because of its small size, 14-16” tall, it's a great option for containers and borders. As a native wildflower, Turtlehead will do well planted near or around water features in your garden.

USDA Hardiness Planting Zones

To determine if a plant is sufficiently cold hardy, the USDA created numbered zones indicating winter low temperatures; the lower the zone number the colder the winter.

  • If the coldest winter temperature expected in your area is -15°F (zone 5) then any plants rated zones 3-5 will survive the winter temperatures in your area.
  • If you live in very warm winter areas (zones 9-11) plants with zones 3-4 ratings are not recommended. The lack of freezing winter temperatures do not provide a time for winter dormancy (rest).
