The best way is to take a piece in the spring when first emerging and make sure there is a bit of root. It will spread fairly quickly. All the turtlehead are easy to divide.
I have not started seed from chelone but would like to try. Anyone start turtlehead seed?

Thanks for the advice, Mr. Ants and Gloria. We will see about taking a root cutting.
