Scutellaria diffusa

Family lamiaceae
Life cycle annual
Flowers lavender (summer)
Size 6"
Light sun-part shade

Hmmm... Got this via the HPS/MAG seed exchange, where the catalog entry says it's an annual with lavender-blue flowers, which self-sows freely. A different online source says it's a perennial hardy to zone 5, with coral red-pink flowers. GRIN is blissfully unaware of this species. So I guess only time will tell what I really have on my hands!

We left this plant behind in our Pennsylvania garden (and wish it well); we don't grow it in Houston.
