Scutellaria albida

Scutellaria albida

Common name skullcap
Family lamiaceae
Life cycle perennial
Flowers white (summer)
Size 16"

Erect rhizomatous plant, with white flowers arranged in pairs and fairly typical gently serrated foliage. First-year flowers are smaller than those of most other skullcaps we grow, but I'll wait till next year to pass judgment on its overall performance. Unlike some scutellarias, this one emerges early in spring and is already a robust plant by mid-spring.

This plant used to grow in our garden, but it slipped away...
