Thanks to the late 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 J.K. Small. 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 Ladys Island, SC. For us, it forms a 2' tall stems and is tightly clumping with excellent form that starts flowering in June and continues sporadically until frost with lavender blue flowers.
