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.
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.
