Description:
This spreading, native of the mint family is 3-12" tall. The snapdragon like flowers are blue to purple, and appear spring to summer on new growth following a winter dormant period . Found at the edges of open woods and on steep slopes, it is best used in the front of a lightly shaded border or in a rock garden. To enjoy the flowers to the maximum give this plant some space to spread. Scullcap is drought tolerant; however, occasional water will prolong its bloom.
