GENUS INDEX

GENUS CODE: SCUTE
GENUS SCIENTIFIC: Scutellaria
GENUS AUTHORITY: L.
GENUS COMMON: Skullcap
GENUS SUMMARY: (contributed by Bruce A. Sorrie and Alan S. Weakley)
GENUS IDENTIFICATION: Identification notes: Recognizable by the tractor seat-shaped protuberance on the upper calyx. *Note: in key break 22b, corollas of S. alabamensis may reach 22 mm long; its calyces are both stipitate glandular and punctate glandular, thus differing from S. arenicola and S. mellichampii. In key break 22a, corollas of S. mellichampii may be as short as 21 mm; its calyces are punctate glandular only, unlike S. incana var. australis which has both punctate glands and stipitate glands on calyces.

HORTICULTURAL
Plant Sale Text: Hoary skullcap has dense spikes of showy, deep blue flowers that bloom for many weeks in late summer. Its handsomely textured foliage contrasts beautifully with its unusual flowers. Its odd common name comes from the resemblance of the calyx of each flower to a skullcap. This Southeastern native perennial typically grows in the mountains of North Carolina in open woods and clearings and along roadsides. It is attractive enough to make the transition to a more formal garden. 2014 N.C. Wildflower of the Year.
