Skullcap, or Scutellaria Lateriflora, is also known as Scutellaria, Virginian Skullcap, Scullcap, Scute, Blue Skullcap, Mad-Dog Skullcap, and Madweed.
Skullcap is an herbaceous perennial mint with ridged leaves and tiny flowers that can range in color from purple and blue to pink and white. The two-lobed flowers resemble the military helmets worn by early European settlers, hence the herb's name.
A hardy plant, it grows 1 to 4 feet (25 cm to 1 m) high, thriving in the woods and swamplands of eastern North America.
