Mad-Dog Skullcap Picture

Branched upright stems are adorned with pretty pairs of 1/2 inch violet-blue lipped flowers from June through September, leaves up to 2 1/2 inch , spreading by rhizomes and seed. Makes a lovely tea. The name "Mad-Dog" became associated with the plant when an 18th century physician claimed he had cured people of rabies using this plant - his claims were quickly discredited but the name stuck!
