Skullcap Seeds - Hoary Skullcap


Scutellaria incana

This hardy perennial wildflower is native to the central and eastern US. “Hoary” refers to its fuzzy stems and leaves, and “skullcap” comes from the helmet-shaped calyxes of its flowers. The plants bear long racemes of two-lipped blue flowers from July to September, and can thrive in full sun to partial shade. 0.25 gram pocket contains approximately 140 seeds.

Skullcap seeds should be wet-cold stratified for 60 days, then started indoors and planted out after the last frost. Sow shallowly.
