Thanks to NC plantsman, Dr. Larry Mellichamp, who shared this lovely, but little known Southeast native skullcap that was named after his ancestor, botanist Joseph Mellichamp by the late Asa Gray. Scutellaria mellichampii ranges from southeastern SC into central Alabama, but our offering is a SC seed strain, discovered and named by nurseryman Daniel Payne of Bluffton, SC. For us, it forms a 2' tall clump that starts flowering in June and continues sporadically until frost with small lavender blue flowers.
