Angela and Linda’s Garden Notes:

What’s the scuttlebutt about this new skull cap? Bumblebees will love it, because it is covered in deep purple flowers.  You will love it because it is compact and full, and drought tolerant. The dark green leaves have eggplant colored edges and are supported by deep maroon stems, making a show-stopping combination. Skullcaps are a great native replacement for salvias and lavenders and this new selection combines perfectly with bright yellow coreopsis, little bluestem and other drought tolerant natives.
