Does it strike you as strange a skullcap would have a name like 'Lilac Lullaby'? Sort of "hand that rocks the cradle" image, but I digress. We planted this Turkish cutie in our trials, expecting quick death as was the case with many of the nice skullcaps from the Balkans, but, a year later, we had a 1' tall x 2' wide clump, topped, from mid-April through May, with upright spikes of terminal clusters of light yellow parrot-head-like flowers, each with a blush of purple on the nose. We have been particularly impressed with its performance in our full sun rock garden. This gem was selected from a row of seedlings at Holland's Sahin Seed and later named by Greenleaf Plants...bravo!
