Scutellaria x 'Appalachian Blues' PPAF

Skullcap

Introduced in 2022 as a top performing Hybrid Skullcap, Scutellaria x ‘Appalachian Blues’ is a shade-adaptable perennial that produces large, purple-and-white bicolored flowers between May and June and will continue to bloom sporadically throughout the summer. Flowers are attractive to various bee species, blooming for several weeks and growing to an ultimate height of 24” over top of deep green leaves with darkened margins. This particular selection was bred by West Virginian horticulturist Peter Haus as a cross between Scutellaria ovata and Scutellaria serrata, keeping the clumping habit and shade tolerance of the latter, the ultimate height and ability to handle dry sites of the former, and the pollination services of both.
