Scutellaria ovata

Heartleaf skullcap

The foliage of this native beauty has a metallic-purple appearance in spring and early summer. As the leaves lose their luster in mid-summer, spikes of flowers appear in a cloud of violet blue. It prefers a dry, gravelly part shade, but will grow in any part or full shade site. Can go dormant after flowering in warmer zones.
