Scutellaria species (spp.), commonly known as skullcap, are perennial, herbaceous plants frequently classified as wildflowers. In Florida, 11 species are native to Florida. They have unique seed stalks and blue to purple flowers. The name Scutellaria is derived from the Latin word “scutella,” which translates to “little dish,” referring to the structure of the calyx. The calyx protrudes over the base of the flower, resembling a cap or helmet, giving it the common name skullcap. This plant grows in diverse environmental areas ranging from uplands, seasonally flooded, and ruderal areas.  They have both ornamental and medicinal value. This plant has pleasing flower stalks, long season of blooming, and is drought tolerant.
