Widely distributed wildflower, found in wet meadows and along streamsides. One-sided flowerstalks with hooded blue flowers. Strappy, slightly serrated leaves.
||marsh skullcap; common skullcap
Update: What I'm growing is probably not S. galericulata - the leaf characteristics don't match. I'll update the page when I've got it figured out.
We left this plant behind in our Pennsylvania garden (and wish it well); we don't grow it in Houston.
