This delightful Mexican skullcap makes a wonderfully durable, attractive, and easy-to-grow gem for the rock garden. Our 14-year-old plant is 8" tall x 18" wide. In spring, this dwarf mound is smothered in tiny fruit-punch-colored, snapdragon-like flowers that continue sporadically through the summer...dynamite! Scutellaria suffrutescens 'Texas Rose' was originally collected in 1986 by Dave Creech, Ray Jordan, and the late Lynn Lowery near Horsetail Falls, west of Monterrey, Mexico, and named by us in 1997.
