I thought scullcap at first, but couldn't find a good picture that looked like it, also looked at monkshood and though no, that's not it. But I'll go look at the links you gave, you might be right about the scutellaria ovata.

Thanks Linda, that does look a lot like it. Now I need to get back out to the plant to check out the other parts to see if they match up. There was only the one plant, so I didn't want to take it with me.

Hope thats the plant.

I have a plant that needs IDing, when you get some time could you go over to my blog and see if you know that one, thanks

Heading your way now :)

Glad to see someone besides me has a tad or trouble identifying plants in the wild, althoug that is not entirely correct as they are in their natural setting, hence not wild.

Roxann said...

Nitwit, ha, I have lots of plants I can't identify! I learned also from being on the native plant lists that even the botanists will ask for help confirming or identifying plants, so we shouldn't feel ashamed. It's the best way to learn, actually :)

Has a square stem with bilateral flowers, so it's likely in the mint/salvia family. Maybe this will help you narrow it down.
