It appears I've never grown this - the plant originally labeled as such was probably S. altissima. So I'll put this one on my wish list! Pavel from the Ukraine writes about the two species:
S.woronowii has bracts more longer than tubes and unicolor pale-violet flowers. S.altissima has bicolor flowers as seen on your photos. Both species grows in Ukraine. S.altissima is widely spread, S.woronowii only at Crimea peninsula (unique habitat).
This plant used to grow in our garden, but it slipped away...

|Melissa Belknap||Jun 24, 2009||I am looking for a blue, short skullcap. I have many of the same variety that is a dark, dusty pink. It is a great border plant, and blooms most all the time. I bought a blue one once at a very unique little nursery, but can't locate it now. Might you have any for sale, or know where I might find it? Thanks!! m|
Most skullcaps are blue-flowered, so that doesn't narrow it down too much! I've not found plants for sale very much, at least not at local nurseries around here. All of mine come from seed.
