Description

Skullcap, Downy (Scutellaria Incana) (Hoary Skullcap)

Family: Lamiaceae

Hardiness: to 15° F

Herbaceous perennial native to the northeastern and central US.

The plant is substantially taller than other skullcap species, and can reach up to 3 feet. The flowers are large and blue. The plant was used extensively by the Cherokee - against diarrhea, as a nervine, and in childbirth to help dispel the placenta. Currently, herbalists use Downy Skullcap as a nervine (interchangeably with Scutellaria Lateriflora).

Plant prefers part shade to full sun and dry to moderately moist conditions. The seed requires a period of cold, moist conditioning to germinate. Sow in fall to early spring.
