Leonard's Skullcap

The diminutive Scutellaria parvula var. leonardii grows in sunny, dry, gravelly sites with very little competition. I had never seen this tiny plant until last weekend when Scott Namestnik and I found it in central Indiana on a gravelly slope. It is now recognized as Scutellaria parvula var. missouriensis.
