Large-flowered skullcap [Scutellaria montana]

The large-flowered skullcap is an herb that has squared stems and grows to a height of approximately 22 inches. It has opposite, oblong leaves which are up to 3 inches long. Blue and white flowers appear in May and early June and a brown nutlet matures by late June or early July. The skullcap's habitat is dry soil on rocky slopes in undisturbed mature oak and hickory woodlands where trees range from 70 to over 200 years old.

Historically, the skullcap occurred throughout the southern portion of the Ridge and Valley region of Georgia and Tennessee. Currently, there are seven known populations in Georgia and three in Tennessee with a total of approximately 7,000 individuals.

Major factors affecting the survival of this species are decades of logging old forests and conversion of land to agricultural uses.

Efforts toward recovery of the species focuses on nursery cultivation of the plant and reintroduction into suitable, protected areas in its historic range.
