Veiny Skullcap

Colony-forming perennial in the mint family with rounded, toothed leaves and stalks topped with multiple tiny flowers. The flowers are pink to purplish, tubular shaped with extended lower lips that curve upwards. The flowers are followed by a helmet-like seed capsule that forcibly ejects the seeds when it ripens by means of a spring-like mechanism. This is a bottom land species, and prefers moist sites.
