Little Elephanthead is the most admired and remembered wildflower. Those fetching, pink flowers look exactly like an elephant's head! It is an esy species to grow as long as you provide it with constantly wet, humus-rich soil and full sun. In the wild, it grows from 8-14 inches tall. It may get even a bit taller in your bog garden.
