A new hybrid skullcap from High Country Gardens. A cross between two native skullcaps, Violet Cloud likes the soil lean and well drained. A sparkling addition for the rock garden, xeristrip and any low water-use area. Additional watering is required during establishment the first year, after that, it should be drought tolerant.

Blooms continuously during the summer months. It’s hard to beat Scutellarias for toughness. Try S. resinosa, (blue with white markings) prairie skullcap, and S. drummondii, (blue flowers) two native wildflower skullcaps. These skullcaps form tight compact mounds.

Use in Garden

Full sun at the front of a xeristrip, xeric bed or border. Rock Garden. Native plant garden.
