We've grown the similar Scutellaria orientalis before (although it has now expired). According to some descriptions, this (sub)species should have brighter yellow flowers, with a reddish mark. I haven't particularly noticed those distinctions, but I'm enjoying the plants whatever their proper name is.
||Scutellaria orientalis subsp. sevanensis
||yellow (late spring)
|| Flowers first year from seed sown indoors early.
detailed seed-starting info below
The year I grew these from seed, they bloomed in July - but now that they've settled into their regular perennial habit, they show off their flowers earlier - late May into June.
We left this plant behind in our Pennsylvania garden (and wish it well); we don't grow it in Houston.

|Sydney Fremantle||Jul 18, 2009||I agree with cold treatment. I split my AGS packet; those I sowwed in January and left out, with occasinal cover against rain, germinated markedly better than those I sowed in a propagating case in March.|
- Seed from '08 trade. Baggy 70F (16d; 4%G, 13d) - 70F with light (8%G, 9-20d).
Baggy 35F (5w) - 70F (48%G, 2-20d)
- Seed from '08 trade. Baggy 35F (6w; 7%G, 5w [did not develop
) - 70F (26%G, 3-13d)]
Cold treatment was helpful.
