Heart-Leaved Skullcap

Here at Land-Grant and the bee collective, we love bumblebees– those cute furry little bees that seemingly defy physics to fly around and collect nectar and pollen. We planted this skullcap plant to attract them to the beer garden. While other bees might be interested in this flower, their tongues aren’t long enough to pollinate this flower effectively. If you like the look of this plant and have too many deer in your yard, this is the plant for you! It is known to have very bitter leaves which make it unappealing to herbaceous grazers.

Plant this skullcap in partial sun or partial shade and be ready to see blooms in mid-summer.
